City Council to Discuss Tenant Right Ordinances

By Edhat Subscriber

If you are a Renter in Santa Barbara you may want to consider attending Tuesday's City Council Meeting or writing the City Council a letter. The meeting is being held to discuss a Tenant Right Ordinance in response to: - A substantial rise in No Cause Evictions (>200 in 2016), - Multi-year vacancy rate of .5%, - Unlimited rent hikes - Last years reported annual rent increase of 20%, - Tenant displacement during the school year for families in the school district, and - Inadequate or substandard living situations

A Tenant's Rally will begin at 5:30pm at De La Guerra Plaza. Tenants are asked to wear Blue to visually display their numbers and solidarity.

This Special Evening City Council Meeting will be held at City Hall (735 Anacapa St.) beginning at 6PM. It will address: - Banning unjust "no cause" evictions and gentrification with a Just Cause Ordinance, - Slumlords and lack of maintenance through Improved Code Enforcement, - No evictions during the school year, - Health and Safety Inspections - The right to choose a long-term lease - Rent stabilization to stop unlimited rent increase, and - Much more

Send A Letter to the City Council: hschneider@santabarbaraca.gov, ghart@santabarbaraca.gov, hwhite@santabarbaraca.gov, rrowse@santabarbaraca.gov, fhotchkiss@santabarbaraca.gov, cmurillo@santabarbaraca.gov, jdominguez@santabarbaraca.gov
