Letter: Rent-controlled housing won’t be demolished under SB 50

Housing bill can show all
that smart land use works

Re: “Sen. Scott Wiener makes changes to controversial housing bill” (Mercurynews.com, Jan. 6):

SB 50 provides California with the unique opportunity ramp up housing construction while simultaneously cutting greenhouse gas emissions by promoting development close to public transit.

Contrary to what anti-growth advocates say, this bill would not allow for the demolition of any existing rent-controlled housing stock, nor would it “bulldoze” existing communities; it would simply allow property owners to up-zone their buildings.
