Today, Monday, June 24, Protect Culver City Renters will hold a press conference on the steps of Culver City City Hall with tenants’ rights advocates from across the city prior to the Culver City City Council voting on whether to take the first step to institute a rent freeze.
The year-long rent freeze proposed by Protect Culver City Renters is similar to the freeze passed last September and extended this past April by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors in unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County.
The highly anticipated vote comes on the heels of Los Angeles County announcing a 12% increase in homelessness across the county – with disaggregated data revealing a staggering 60% increase within Culver City – and the recent vote in Inglewood to enact a permanent rent stabilization ordinance with 5% rent caps.
Tenant advocacy groups across Los Angeles County are actively leading campaigns for similar policies in at least seven other jurisdictions.
