Mountain View Tenant Action!

Last year, we fought against the “Sneaky Repeal” of the Mountain View Community Stabilization and Fair Rent Act (CSFRA), which was passed as Measure V in 2016. The CSFRA, which gives Mountain View tenants the right to rent stabilization as well as just cause from evictions, is still under attack from landlords and the “Sneaky Repeal” has qualified to be on the ballot next year.
As we continue to mobilize for fair rent and tenant rights, the Mountain View City Council has formed a subcommittee tasked with proposing a Council backed ballot initiative to reform the CSFRA. If this committee only hear from landlords, their proposal will not reflect the needs of our community!
The subcommittee will meet on Monday, August 19, at 7pm, and this is a chance for us as tenants to be heard. Let’s tell the subcommittee how the CSFRA can actually be improved, such as by extending it to mobile homes and in case state law is updated, to duplexes and single family homes!
- Before the meeting, the SV DSA Housing WG will host a meetup at 6pm in Pioneer Memorial Park, which is located between the Mountain View Library and City Hall, at the intersection of Church and Castro.
- There will be snacks, and together we will discuss our experiences and ideas. If you would like to give public comment during the meeting, this is a great opportunity to get some practice in!
- If you can’t make it to our meetup before the subcommittee meeting, please join us at City Hall at 7pm. As this is a subcommittee meeting, and not a full City Council meeting, we expect it to be to the point and not overly long.
- All are welcome, and your perspective is especially important if you are a Mountain View tenant!
