AB 325 (Alejo D)   Land use and planning: cause of actions: time limitations.

Where the action or proceeding is brought in support of or to encourage or facilitate the development of housing that would increase the community’s supply of affordable housing, a cause of action accrues 60 days after notice is filed or the legislative body takes a final action in response to the notice, whichever occurs first. This bill would authorize the notice to be filed any time within 3 years after a specified action pursuant to existing law. The bill would declare the intent of the Legislature that its provisions modify a specified court opinion. This bill contains other related provisions and other existing laws.
