To address the skyrocketing cost of building housing, and to increase housing options and affordability for all Oaklanders, Mayor Schaaf and City Councilmembers Kalb and Thao are proposing a new ordinance that would make comprehensive amendments to the Oakland Planning Code.
The Oakland Construction Innovation and Expanded Housing Options Ordinance would update the City’s zoning regulations to:
- Allow residential occupancy of RVs and tiny homes on wheels on private property subject to certain health and safety standards
- Allow mobile homes and manufactured homes in all zoning districts where residential uses are permitted
- Establish density and open space regulations for efficiency dwelling units; and
- Establish height regulations for modular construction.
