Notes from the Board
Through Measure B funding, in 2015-2016 the Vallejo City Council set aside $55,000 to implement a Residential Rental Inspection Program. They directed staff to develop a program that targets blighted and unsafe rental housing. There have been numerous meetings scheduled to receive input from property owners, landlords, and other interested residents on the development of an ordinance to address these quality of life issues and preservation of the housing stock.
Ann Putney, Housing and Community Development Manager, will be the guest speaker at the VHNA General Meeting on Saturday July 23, 2016. She will provide information on how other cities have enacted similar ordinances to address rental property, and the process undertaken to gather community input on developing the Residential Rental Inspection Ordinance.
Please mark your calendar to join the members of the VHNA on July 23, 2016 at the Mira Community Cultural Center, 51 Daniels Avenue in Vallejo from 10:00 am to Noon. Also, bring a Vallejo Heights’ neighbor along to enjoy refreshments and Moschetti Coffee, provided by the VHNA and its members, and learn about the proposed ordinance.
