We Have a Second Stop Stealth Dorms Champion
On Friday, Council Member Chris Riley, in a meeting with members of our coalition, affirmed he would join Council Member Mike Martinez in asking the Council to pass a resolution to lower occupancy limits (from 6 to at least 4) in single-family neighborhoods. Doing so will substantially reduce the financial incentives of stealth dorm developers to demolish affordable homes to build dorm-style housing. We believe the resolution will employ a process similar to the one used to pass the recent rental registration ordinance: the Council would ask the City Manager and staff to provide the Council with a proposed ordinance in 90 days, after a public review and input process. More to come!
