Contra Costa County New Construction Ordinance
The Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday, January 18, 2022, approved an ordinance to eliminate gas lines in all future development for unincorporated parts of the county only. That means that all new residential buildings, such as single-family, multi-family, and detached accessory dwelling units (ADU) will not be permitted to include a gas line. The ordinance also requires new construction of retail, office, and hotels to be all-electric as well (any of these buildings may also use solar/thermal heating in their project). However, any new development proposing to have a restaurant or any other use that is not a retail, office, or hotel would be allowed to have natural gas.

C.A.R OPPOSES AB 854 (Lee and Carrillo), which forces property owners to stay in the rental housing business for at least five years. AB 854 is an outrageous attack on private property rights, effectively allowing government to seize property by dictating its use and disproportionately harming small rental property owners who are seniors or individuals of color.
