UPDATE: This legislation was approved on 9-28-21.
AB 491 was introduced on 12-18-20 by Assembly Member Bloom.
This bill requires that a mixed-income multifamily structure provide the same access to the common entrances, common areas, and amenities of the structure to occupants of the affordable housing units in the structure as is provided to occupants of the market-rate housing units.
The bill would also prohibit a mixed-income multifamily structure from isolating the affordable housing units within the structure to a specific floor or an area on a specific floor. The bill would define various terms for these purposes.
