The Millbrae City Council approved an extension of an urgency ordinance approved in December aimed at restricting housing developments expected as a result of Senate Bill 9, a state law that took effect at the beginning of the year allowing for up to four units on formerly single-family only lots.

With the city’s emergency rules, a property owner wishing to develop two or more additional units on their property pursuant to SB 9 would need to deed restrict at least one unit to have below-market rate rents such that it would be affordable to residents who earn 80% or less of the county’s median income. The rule will likely hinder financial feasibility of using SB 9 to develop more than two units on a parcel.
