Why was the Ordinance enacted?

On May 2, 2022, the City Council voted to include “Adoption of Tenant Protection Ordinance Package” as one of its Top Ten Goals for Fiscal Years 2022-2024. The Ordinance helps fulfill this Council goal.  The tenant protections in the Ordinance include limits on tenant evictions in addition to the eviction restrictions in the Tenant Protection Act.  The Ordinance makes qualifying tenants eligible for eviction protections sooner than the Tenant Protection Act.  The Ordinance also includes notice requirements, relocation assistance and rights to return to a rental property for qualifying tenants as permitted by the Ellis Act when landlords withdraw their property from the residential market.
