Over the last few weeks, housing providers and community members have spent hours voicing their concerns and coming together to meet on issues relating to the rent control ordinance. Thank you to all of the housing providers, City staff and Councilmembers who have attended the meetings.
Housing providers continue to advocate for common sense solutions. It has also been made clear through these discussions that the City Council acted without adequate data. The City Council should now do what they should have done, which is collect needed data, analyze it and take appropriate and measured responses.
You need to take action today.
The City has not funded the Rent Control Program as of yet and it is not too late to turn back from the brink. The City Council should postpone the funding of the program and work on sensible solutions to address concerns. The City can achieve results based on data without a costly $1.5 million dollar bureaucracy.
Write or call the City Council!
Tell the City Council….
Beverly Hills does not need a costly rent control program. Common sense reforms can be achieved.
Postpone the vote on costs until the mediation task force is complete and recommendations have been reviewed.
Analyze collectible data before moving forward on any costly and sweeping programs.
Institute a 7% CAP to maintain financial flexibility.
SAVE THE DATE!
There will likely be a City Council meeting on 8/8 to discuss program costs. You need to attend!
