Community Meeting on Capital Improvement Plans August 28th
Published on August 14, 2023
The Alameda Rent Program held a community meeting on Monday, August 28th, 2023, to discuss proposals for a revised Capital Improvement Plan policy.
The City of Alameda has had a Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) Policy in effect since 2016, allowing landlords to submit proof of qualifying improvements and pass the costs through to tenants. The policy predates the current Rent Ordinance and has seen only a few applications approved since its adoption.
In May 2023, the City Council enacted a moratorium on CIP for properties with 25 or more rental units and directed staff to return later in the year with alternatives to the current policy.
At the August 28 meeting, program staff presented some policy proposals, summarized feedback from tenant and landlord stakeholder groups in early August, answered questions & took public comment from meeting participants.
