Chiu Announces BART Transit Oriented Housing Measure

(Concord) -- Assemblymember David Chiu (D-San Francisco) Chair of the Assembly Housing Committee announced the introduction of Assembly Bill 2923 which would make it easier to zone Transit Oriented Developments near Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) stations. The measure would put housing near public transportation. “We are here today, because of the very simple idea that building housing next to major transportation makes sense,” Chiu said.
