Event description

Description

Rent control is one of the most controversial issues in urban development. Renter protection advocates argue that housing costs, especially for low-income people, must be contained to prevent displacement and homelessness. Others contend that limiting what landlords can charge in rent discourages development and ultimately drives up housing costs.

In 1995, The Costa-Hawkins Act barred rent control in California on homes and apartments built after that year. In an era of extreme housing costs, what has this law meant for Bay Area renters and what effect does rent control have on the economics of housing? What are prospects for the current efforts afoot in the state legislature to repeal Costa-Hawkins?

We'll be joined by:

  • Rob Bonta, State Assemblyman for CA-18 (East Bay)
  • Carol Galante, Faculty Director, Terner Center for Housing Innovation, UC Berkeley
  • Margaretta Lin, Principal, Dellums Institute for Social Justice
  • Pam Hall, Home Management Specialist, City of Oakland, and State Board Member, Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment.

We enforce a Code of Conduct at our events. Please take a minute and read it through.
