The Sacramento City Council voted unanimously on Tuesday in favor of a draft plan to change the city’s exclusive zoning for single-unit households. Starting December of 2022, the city will allow the construction of single-family homes, duplexes, triplexes, and fourplexes in areas that are currently zoned for single-unit homes only. The City Council voted 8-0 in approval, taking inspiration from the cities of Minneapolis and Portland, Oregon.
