CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2017–2018 REGULAR SESSION

Assembly Bill No. 2263


Introduced by Assembly Member Friedman

February 13, 2018


An act to add Section 18962 to the Health and Safety Code, relating to land use.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 2263, Friedman. Designated historical resource: conversion or adaptation: required parking.
The State Historical Building Code provides for alternative regulations and standards for the rehabilitation, preservation, restoration, or relocation of qualified historical buildings or structures, and requires all state agencies and local authorities to administer and enforce that code with respect to historical buildings or structures under their respective jurisdictions. Those alternative building standards, enacted by regulations adopted by the State Historical Building Safety Board and specified other state agencies, are required to be applied by every city, county, and local agency.
This bill would require a local agency to provide specified reductions in required parking for certain development projects in which a designated historical resource, as defined in the bill, is being converted or adapted, unless otherwise required by local ordinance. Because the bill imposes new duties on local agencies, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.
This bill would provide that no reimbursement is required by this act for a specified reason.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: YES  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.

 Section 18962 is added to the Health and Safety Code, to read:

18962.
 (a) For a development project in which a designated historical resource is being converted or adapted, a local agency shall provide the following reductions in required parking, unless otherwise required by a local historical preservation or adaptive reuse ordinance:
(1) For a project converting or adapting a designated historical resource to a residential use that is located within one-half mile of a major transit stop, as defined in subdivision (b) of Section 21155 of the Public Resources Code, a local agency shall not require the project to provide parking spaces greater than the number of parking spaces that existed on the project site at the time the project application was submitted.
(2) For a project converting or adapting a designated historical resource to a nonresidential use, a local agency shall provide a 25-percent reduction in the amount of parking spaces that would otherwise be required.
(b) A development project in which a designated historical resource is being converted or adapted that is eligible for reductions in required parking pursuant to this section shall comply with all federal, state, and local alternative regulations and standards necessary for the preservation, restoration, rehabilitation, safety, relocation, or continued use of the designated historical resource.
(c) For purposes of this section, “designated historical resource” means a structure or property officially designated on a local register of historical resources, the California Register of Historical Resources, or the National Register of Historic Places.

SEC. 2.

 No reimbursement is required by this act pursuant to Section 6 of Article XIII B of the California Constitution because a local agency or school district has the authority to levy service charges, fees, or assessments sufficient to pay for the program or level of service mandated by this act, within the meaning of Section 17556 of the Government Code.
