AB 2840 (Reyes; D-San Bernardino) Warehouse and Logistics Ban
In the plainest language, AB 2840 would ban the building of any facility 100,000 s.f. or more within 1,000 ft of a “sensitive receptor,” which has a broad definition but is basically most non-industrial uses. Additionally, all projects that are not banned due to proximity to a sensitive receptor must have a PLA to be approved.
The bill takes away local control for communities to decide land use, ignores our states strict environmental regulations, severely disrupts the supply chain, and will stop the redevelopment of areas that are in need of new/improved infrastructure and the jobs that come along with industrial development and warehouse operations.
Please share this information with your networks and local elected officials and their staffs at both the local and state level.
The bill is now set in Assembly Local Government for April 20. Over the next two weeks we will work with our partners in Sacramento and all of you locally to assure that legislators on the committee understand this bill is a de facto ban on building modern warehouses and will further disrupt the state’s supply chain.
