CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 15

Meeting Date: July 11, 2000

Subject/Title: Property at 1348 Berry Lane

Submitted by: Jon Elam, City Manager

Approved by: Jon Elam, City Manager

RECOMMENDATION

Discussion item.

PREVIOUS ACTION

None

BACKGROUND

Recently the ownership of the apartments located at 1348 Berry Lane changed owners. The new owners immediately instigated a process to dramatically increase rent levels from $550 to $850 per month.

Many of these long time Brentwood residents approached the City to ask for help, particularly given the living conditions (see attached description of Unit #3).

City code enforcement staff conducted a detailed review of these units on Thursday, July 6th to document the various code violations. These will be forwarded to the owner when complete.

The stories from these residents are heart breaking, but equally worrisome is the continuing loss of housing for low and moderate income working families, while these families understand and in fact have agreed to pay higher rent levels, they do so in part due to the lack of any choice available to them within Brentwood.

They requested to visit briefly with you to let you know first hand of the housing shortage that low income residents face.
