Continued Downturn Leads Governor Brown To Sign Legislative Relief For Developers


On July 15, 2011, Governor Brown signed into law AB 208, a bill that offers a further extension of certain subdivision maps. The bill was originally sponsored by the California Building Industry Association in order to provide developers with some relief from the continued downturn in the housing market.

AB 208 provides for a 24-month extension for tentative maps that were otherwise set to expire between the effective date of the bill (AB 208 was enacted as an “urgency statute,” meaning it takes effect immediately) and January 1, 2014. The extension is automatic, meaning that developers and property owners do not need to apply for or request this extension from local jurisdictions, and is embodied in new Government Code Section 66452.23.
