CAA engaged as San Jose studies anti-displacement strategies
This week, the San Jose City Council held a study session to better understand the issue of tenant displacement from a residential and business perspective. The Housing Department scheduled the study session to educate the council on who is getting displaced, why they are being displaced and what can be done to prevent that displacement.
Much of the discussion focused on what the city could do to further support tenants from being evicted. While there is no disagreement that displacement is occurring because of rising rents, there was disagreement on what can be done to lessen it.
