The Housing & Community Development Commission will hold a special meeting on October 5, 2017 to discuss the Tenant Protection Ordinance and the revised Apartment Rent Ordinance.  The amended Tenant Protection Ordinance and memorandum are available for review.  The memo outlining the changes to the draft Apartment Rent Ordinance and Regulations is available for review. The report includes proposed staff changes to the Ordinance as a result of feedback received during the public comment period.  The draft Apartment Rent Ordinance (ARO) and Regulations were available for public review and comment from August 14, 2017 to September 22, 2017.

The City Council will be considering the following revisions:

  •  A potential amendment to the Tenant Protection Ordinance to add criminal activity as a basis for eviction.
  •  Amending anti-retaliation to prohibit landlords from threatening notification of immigration status.
  •  Consideration of the modified Apartment Rent Ordinance including the annual increase to the Consumer Price Index (CPI) with banking provision.
  •  Consideration an income discrimination ordinance.
