The Marin County Board of Supervisors will consider adopting a rent freeze in two census tracts with significant impacts from COVID-19.
If the board adopts the measure, all properties within Census Tract 1290 (Marin City) and Census Tract 1330 (Northern West Marin) will be subject to the rent freeze.
The California Apartment Association is mobilizing members to oppose this move.
“Rent control is not a solution,” said Alex Khalfin, vice president of public affairs for CAA. “Rather than adopting rent control policies, the board should focus on providing additional emergency rental assistance to tenants and landlords impacted by the pandemic.”
