Petitioning Berkeley City Council

Preserve Affordable Housing

The Berkeley City Council is considering revisions to the Demolition Ordinance which would make it easy to tear down rent controlled apartments – and any other building in Berkeley!

In June, a compromise draft of revisions to the existing Demolition law went to the City Council. Since then, each new draft of the law is worse for Berkeley, and Berkeley tenants in particular, than the last. The Sierra Club, NAACP, Neighborhoods Council, Berkeley Architectural Heritage Assn. and East Bay Community Law Center are also speaking out against these new drafts. All are agreed that any change must require one-for-one replacement of rent controlled housing with units affordable to low income residents.
