Committee to Explore Renters Issues at Community Meeting


The City of South Pasadena (City) invites community members to attend a Community Meeting on Renters Concerns on Monday, March 20, 2017, at the Library Community Room, 1115 El Centro Street.

Renters, property owners, and the general public have the opportunity to discuss concerns on the costs of renting and owning rental properties in South Pasadena. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and the meeting will begin at 7 p.m.

Formed in November 2016, the City Council Ad-Hoc Rent Stabilization Committee was established to conduct a comprehensive assessment of rising rents and their effects on the entire community. The Committee is working with City staff to research the legal, fiscal, and policy aspects of potential legislation, with the goal of developing a recommendation for the full City Council to consider later this year.

That assessment will require input from all stakeholders, including both renters and property owners, to ensure that all aspects of the issue are adequately considered. The meeting will provide a forum for organized groups and individuals on all sides of the issue to present their viewpoints. City staff will also review available policy options for the Ad-Hoc Committee to consider as it develops its recommendation to the entire City Council.
