Using this form, you can send email directly to Senators Isaac Bryan and Sydney Kamlager to express your disapproval of AB 2097, which will remove parking minimums within a half-mile of transit-rich corridors and transit stops. Parking minimums are a required number of parking spots near a home or business. In Culver City, many residential areas are within that distance because of our elongated borders, thereby making it easier (if this bill passes) to change R-1 single family zoning to multi-family. YIMBY groups have been trying to use removal of parking minimums to achieve this change to R-1.

I am writing to ask you to oppose AB 2097 because it is being used as a wedge to destroy R-1 single family zones. Many residential areas of Culver City are within the half-mile of transit corridors and transit stops that are subject to the removal of parking requirements this bill proposes.
AB 2097 is a bad idea because it applies far too liberally an idea everywhere that might work in a few places in California — Culver City is NOT one of those places. Please oppose AB 2097 and represent my voice as a voting and taxpaying citizen.
Instead of this shotgun approach to politics, I urge you to work directly with a broad spectrum of local constituents and develop meaningful solutions that are truly inclusive and not responsive to well-funded YIMBY groups trying at every turn to “sue the suburbs” and destroy R-1.
Thank you for your time.
