777 Valencia Street, San Francisco

This month's workshop features two long-time participants with San Francisco rent control laws, perhaps San Francisco's thorniest land use issue of all. The topic goes to the heart of the question of who is going to live here in the decades to come. Every year tenants save hundreds of millions of dollars from rent control restrictions on landlords, yet every year there are more rent controlled apartments permanently lost to Ellis Act evictions, apartment mergers, owner-move-in evictions and developers building new housing not subject to rent control on parcels that once contained rent controlled units. Join us on May 27th and learn about the history of San Francisco rent control, how it currently operates, who benefits and who loses, and what challenges lie in the future. Audience questions and involvement are encouraged. The seminars are free and open to the public.

This is the fourth seminar in a monthly series on housing and land use issues sponsored by the San Francisco Green Party and New College of California. The seminar series, hosted every last Thursday of the month, includes a diverse range of topics and speakers--SF Supervisors, activists, attorneys, developers, nonprofit builders and city planners--policymakers and advocates from all sides of our housing and development battles. Here’s a chance for you to consider diverse, frequently contradictory opinions, and make up your own mind on important issues facing the city.

The prior three seminars have been informative, lively and entertaining. For more information about the seminar series and the Green Party Housing and Land Use working group, see:
