The Housing Committee addresses legislation referred to it by Council related to the status and maintenance of the City’s unique housing stock. In 2018 the Committee worked with the Building Department to streamline the rental housing license process and to incorporate condominium rental units in the application process. In 2019, the Committee recommended changes to the Code to define and regulate commercial light trespass. The Committee also worked to provide new tools to follow up on resident concerns of bright lights and glare coming from commercial corridors.
The Committee meets on Monday evenings on an as-needed basis in the East Conference Room at City Hall with active participation from the City’s Building Commissioner, Director of Planning, and other members of the administration.
