A referendum filed with the support of the California Apartment Association, Contra Costa, will prevent El Cerrito’s “just cause” for eviction ordinance from taking effect next week.

Working with hundreds of local property owners, the business community, real estate leaders and concerned citizens, CAA submitted a petition on behalf of local residents with at least 2,159 signatures to El Cerrito’s city clerk, considerably more than the 1,631 valid voter signatures needed to qualify the referendum.
