Ballot summary

The ballot title read as follows:[1]

Creates an entitlement to build residences, notwithstanding otherwise applicable land use regulations, under certain circumstances.

Result of "Yes" Vote: "Yes" vote allows building of residences on parcel in violation of current zoning laws if residence(s) exist on certain similarly-zoned property in same county.

Result of "No" Vote: "No" vote retains current law, allows government to grant exceptions or variances allowing a residence on some properties without creating entitlement for all similar properties.

Summary: Under current law, governments may grant certain exceptions or variances to allow a residence to be built where zoning regulations would not otherwise allow such a residence. The measure expands the circumstances where an otherwise unlawful residence is allowed to include: (1) any parcel adjoining an identically or similarly zoned parcel where a residence exists; and (2) any parcel located in a county where three or more identically or similarly zoned parcels contain a residence. A second residence is allowed under the same criteria. This exception applies regardless of minimum lot size restrictions that otherwise apply and prevent building of residence(s). Measure maintains all property line setback, building height, and waste disposal restrictions, but the measure supersedes all contrary, pre-existing land use regulations. Other provisions.
