Cities could use SB9 and SB10 to up zone with out CEQA and encourage the builders to produce houses to meet RHNA goals. State has provided tools for cities. This is upto cities to do their job. They can easily upzone the lots above ~10000sqft, with Sb10 to build 10 condos and meet RHNA. Simple thing, cities making very complicated. HCD are all aware of this and this time they are very serious on meeting RHNA goals.

Stack and pack postage stamp communities without local resident consideration for schools, traffic, or environmental.

If you do not build, you are encouraging more homeless or spend your 70%+ salary for rent or mortgage. Needless to say it's injustice to future generations , where they become permanent renters. CA has acute shortage of homes. It's eminent for cities/neighborhood's to change (just as old age..), no point to preserve it. To begin with, that is how cities and neighborhood's are built and eventually become vibrant. Plesanton schools lost effectively ~600+ students in the last ten years and as a result probably underfunded...need new homes/kids to make schools afloat.
