No to Housing Commission’s proposal

Dear Mayor Ohtaki and Members of the City Council,

I urge you to reject the proposal of the Housing Commission to require
relocation payments.

The Housing Commission’s proposal is rent control and just cause eviction
in disguise.

The Housing Commission has expanded the scope of a relocation program
beyond the City Council’s original intent – which was to pursue a
relocation assistance program triggered when units are permanently removed
from the market or vacated due to redevelopment.

Please do not create more legal hurdles and financial burdens on property
owners. These proposals jeopardize my ability to continue to provide safe,
stable, and reliable housing for Menlo Park residents.

Instead, please continue working with housing providers to explore a true
relocation assistance program that addresses situations when residents are
displaced due to redevelopment.

Thank you for your collaborative approach to addressing the region’s
housing challenges.
