I just read the bill and it quadruples the area covered under TOD. This includes an up zone of all lots included. Mostly everything is now minimum a 3 unit zoned with a lot of zoning only coming if there is 3+ units.

Creates a parking cap in these areas of 0.5 parking per unit with the ability to go above if you get approval.(previously tod was you can go down to 0.5 with a cap of 1 and you can go below with approval)

I mean is it the most radical thing in the world, probally not but it seems like it will greatly benefit.
