Denise Ducheny owns land within the 30-foot Coastal Height Limit in the City of San Diego. This bill will help her break the 30-foot height limits for her own interests.

Scott Peters, Toni Atkins, and Ben Hueso all voted for Jerry Sanders loophole-filled version of Density Bonus. Only Donna Frye voted for the environment. Mike Aguirre wrote an alternate version of Density Bonus that followed state law and closed all the loopholes. Now all Density Bonus incentives are ministerial, over-the-counter review, not subject to CEQA, and do not have to pay for mitigation for fire, police, parks, etc.
