Workshop set on Concord's rent review ordinance

The Planning and Housing Division of the City of Concord will hold a workshop on Wednesday, April 19 at 1:30 p.m. in the City Council Chambers, 1950 Parkside Dr., to provide an informational overview of the proposed Residential Rent Review Program Ordinance and Fee Resolution. The ordinance and resolution will be presented to the City Council at a public hearing on Tuesday, May 2 at the regular City Council meeting. Landlords and tenants are invited to attend the workshop to ask questions regarding the proposed process.

The program will allow tenants who receive rent increases of over 10 percent in a 12-month period to request mediation services through a City service provider. If mediation services do not resolve the rent dispute, the process would proceed to a public hearing before a Rent Review Board which would hear the facts and render a non-binding decision.
