AB 1505, signed by Gov. Brown on September 29, 2017 and generally referred to as the “Palmer fix”, will allow local jurisdictions to once again require BMRs or inclusionary units in rental housing. It is expected that Mountain View will act shortly to clarify that its BMR ordinance is once again in effect and, in addition, that there will no longer be Rental Housing Impact Fees collected in lieu of requiring BMR units to be built. It is also expected that Los Altos will make it clear that its BMR ordinance is in effect with regard to rental units.
