IMPORTANT NOTICE: On September 1, 2015 the City Council adopted two ordinances: (Ordinance 3131) pertaining to rent increases and (Ordinance 3132) adding the RRAC to the municipal code. 



The Rent Review Advisory Committee (RRAC) reviews complaints of significant rental increases, providing a neutral forum for renters and residential property owners to present their views.  It evaluates increases, determines whether they are equitable, and, if not, attempts to mediate a resolution acceptable to all parties.


The Rent Review Advisory Committee does not provide legal advice. Each landlord and tenant is responsible for seeking the advice of legal counsel on any matters or document related to their specific circumstances. The Committee’s recommendations are not legally binding.
