CONSIDER AN UPDATE FROM THE LEGISLATIVE AD HOC COMMITTEE REGARDING THE "OUR NEIGHBORHOOD VOICES" INITIATIVE (CITY COUNCIL)

Body
I. SUMMARY

This item transmits an informational update from the Legislative Ad Hoc Committee, consisting of Mayor Davis-Holmes and Councilmember Hicks, on the "Our Neighborhood Voices" initiative. This initiative is a local grassroots response to recently enacted state of California legislation, such as Senate Bill 9, that preempt local control over land-use and zoning pertaining to single family areas.
On September 16, 2021, Governor Newsom signed Senate Bill 9 into law. The City Council had previously advocated against this legislation while it was being developed. The "Our Neighborhood Voices" initiative responds to this and similar legislation by seeking to amend the state of California constitution through a ballot initiative that would cause local land-use and zoning laws to override conflicting state laws.
To reinforce the City of Carson's support of local control over land-use and zoning pertaining to single-family areas, the Ad Hoc Committee asked staff to develop a draft letter expressing support for this initiative and asked each City Councilmember whether they wanted to have their signature added. City Councilmembers in support can have their signatures added to the letter, and the letter will be provided to the leaders of the "Our Neighborhood Voices" initiative.
The Legislative Ad Hoc Committee further recommends the City Councilmembers who support the initiative to consider directing staff to add their name to the list of endorsers on the "Our Neighborhood Voices" public website.
This item is for informational purposes only. The text of the initiative is included as Exhibit 1 respectively.
