Appointments, recruitment for Residential Rent Review Panel


The City Council recently established the Residential Rent Review Panel. The panel's role is to review case material submitted by landlords and tenants where a resolution on a rent increase has not been achieved through mediation, and render a non-binding decision in a public hearing. All members of the panel must be Concord residents. The panel is made up of three members and three alternates, all appointed to a term of four years, expiring February 28, 2022:

  • One member and one alternate must be a landlord of a multi-family complex of three or more units, with priority to landlords that own property within the City of Concord
  • One member and one alternate must be a tenant of a multi-family complex of three or more units
  • One member and one alternate must be a neutral party, for example, a single family homeowner

At its Oct. 24 meeting, the Concord City Council made its first appointments to the panel:

  • Landlord of Multi-Family Complex: Elena Leiberman was appointed as an alternate.
  • Tenant of a Multi-Family Complex: Michael Pineschi was appointed as a member.
  • Neutral Party: Sandeep Singh was appointed as a member and Frances Pyne was appointed as an alternate.

To fill the panel, the City Council is now accepting applications for the final two positions: landlord of a multi-family complex position and the alternate for the tenant of a multi-family complex position.

The deadline for receipt of applications by the City Clerk is Friday, Nov. 27 at 5 p.m. Applications forms are available at the City's website at www.cityofconcord.org/BCApplications.
