LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1006, as introduced, Grayson. Manufactured or prefabricated housing units: statewide standards.
Existing law, the Planning and Zoning Law, authorizes a local agency to provide, by ordinance, for the creation of manufactured homes in single-family and multifamily residential zones and sets forth required ordinance standards, including, among others, maximum unit size, parking, and roof overhang standards.
This bill would prohibit a local agency from imposing additional building standards for projects that are constructed using prefabricated and manufactured units, beyond those set forth in the California Building Standards Code.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

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


SECTION 1.

 Section 65852.55 is added to the Government Code, immediately following Section 65852.5, to read:

65852.55.
 Notwithstanding any other law, including, but not limited to, Sections 65852.3 and 65852.5, a county or city, including a charter city, or city and county shall not require building standards, other than those standards set forth in the California Building Standards Code, for projects that are constructed using prefabricated and manufactured units, including, but not limited to, requiring any construction changes that differ from state building standards during installation of the units.
