SB 35 was enacted in 2018 to streamline multifamily infill development in jurisdictions that are not meeting their housing production goals. This paper examines the usage of SB 35 and finds that over 18,000 new homes have either been approved or had an application pending for streamlining under this law between 2018 and 2021. The paper delves into the kinds of projects that are benefitting from SB 35 and includes insights from practitioners on how the law could be improved.
