SB 810 Non-Discrimination Against Affordable Housing Developments
This legislation makes it unlawful for a local government to discriminate against affordable housing in its land use or permitting decisions, whether through action or inaction. Either the intent or effect of discriminating against housing developments with units for those with less than 80% of the area median income is a violation of the law. However, it is not a violation if the decision was based on considerations related to limiting high concentrations of affordable housing.
This act became effective on August 28, 2009.
