Anybody can stop anything because they don’t like it. The governor’s proposal changes that. Basically, what it does for a developer is say, “If you meet the local zoning, planning and design guidelines, and if you are going to have 20 percent affordable units on-site — or 10 percent if you’re near transit — then the project does not have to go through further discretionary review or pass through the buzz saw of the cranky CEQA neighbor.” And the governor is telling the local municipality, “You get to set the standard or the bar as high as you like. But if the developer checks every box that you put in front of them, then the cranky neighbor can’t stop the developer.”.
