Barring Rent Increases in Some Areas

Board of Supervisors

Meeting Date: 2/9/2021


Agenda Item #13: No earlier than 1:30 p.m., the Board will hear a request from the Community Development Agency (CDA) to consider adopting an urgency ordinance temporarily barring rent increases in certain census tracts due to the Public Health Emergency arising from the COVID-19 virus. The ordinance would temporarily prevent residential rent increases in Marin City and northern parts of West Marin as a protection against the economic ramifications of the coronavirus. Residents in those tracts are most impacted by the public health emergency a ban would lower the risk of housing displacement.    


The Board adopted the urgency ordinance.
