Thanks to swift opposition led by CAA’s North Bay Division, the Healdsburg City Council this month rejected an ordinance that would have brought a form of rent control to the city.

The proposal would have forced a landlord to pay up to $7,000 in penalties to any tenant who moves because of a “no fault” eviction or a rent increase greater than 10 percent.

The ordinance came in response to a new property owner whose plans for major renovations to a small apartment building would force current residents to relocate.

The proposal, however, failed to address the issue at hand and would have brought a form of rent and eviction controls to nearly all of Healdsburg’s rental homes.
