How do I know if I can develop my property under SB 9?

SB 9 FAQ 1

There are several qualifying criteria for development under SB 9 in Tustin:

  1. For both development types, an eligible parcel must be in a single family residentially zoned area.
  2. May not be on a parcel with an affordable or deed restricted unit.
  3. May not be located in a high or very high fire hazard zone. 
  4. May not be a historic landmark or in a historically designated Historic District – In Tustin, this criteria results in the exclusion of single family parcels located in the Old Town Area. 
  5. For Urban Lot Splits - The parcel may not be associated with a previous SB 9 lot split or adjacent to another lot split pursuant to SB 9.  
  6. Two-unit developments may not involve the demolition of more than 25% of a dwelling, if it has been occupied by a tenant in the last 3 years.
