Alamedans, Vote Yes on Z!

October 19, 2020

On July 21, 2020, the Alameda City Council approved a local initiative, Measure Z, that seeks to repeal a local prohibition on construction of multi-family housing—a rule that has been in place since voters approved it in 1973. Measure Z also would repeal city rules adopted in 1991 limiting density of any residential unit within the City of Alameda to one housing unit per 2,000 square feet of land. 

If approved by the voters, according to the City Attorney: “This measure would repeal the entirety of Article 26 of the [City] Charter, which prohibits the construction of multi-family housing in Alameda, and imposes a citywide density limitation of one housing unit per 2,000 square feet of land. It would also repeal the requirement that the General Plan continue to maintain the same density limitation.”
