Two San Mateo County supervisors are proposing that the board approve a resolution that supports the divisive Senate Bill 50, which would give the state the right to override city zoning to allow developers to build high-density housing projects in certain areas.
If the rest of the five-member board signs on to supervisors David Canepa and Don Horsley’s resolution, it would make the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors one of the first elected entities in the area to support the bill, which was proposed by Sen. Scott Wiener, D-San Francisco, in December.
Canepa, who represents much of north San Mateo County (Daly City, Colma, Brisbane and parts of San Bruno and South San Francisco), said it became apparent to him that a housing solution was needed when he began to see campers throughout his district.
“People are living in housing that is inadequate or unacceptable,” Canepa said. “We can’t have 10 to 14 people living in a house and still trying to scrape by.”
