Urgency Ordinance for Temporary Residential Rent Freeze (City of San Rafael)

Posted on Category Advocacy

The City Council will consider an ordinance proposed to be adopted on an urgency basis that would enact a temporary moratorium on rent increases (“rent freeze”) for tenants residing in certain residential units through December 31, 2021. The proposed temporary moratorium would solely apply in two designated US Census Tracts, Tract Nos. 1122.01 (Canal Neighborhood) and 1122.02 (Southeast San Rafael and Canal neighborhood), which are areas that have been most disproportionally impacted by COVID-19 and have the greatest level of housing instability.  

The “rent freeze” would not apply to single-family homes, properties containing one or two housing units, accessory dwelling units, and residential units for which an initial Certificate of Occupancy was issued on or after February 1, 1995.
