Notice of Termination Dashboard
The Rent Stabilization Program collaborated with the Center for Social Research at Calvin College to develop a Notice of Termination Dashboard on the platform Tableau for the public to view. The information on this dashboard is derived from the notices of terminations that the Rent Stabilization Program has received, including 3-30-60 day notices of terminations and summons and complaints. The information displayed includes notices received from May 2017 to May 2018.
