There will be a rental housing study consultation on student housing, that is to be held on May 29th, 6:30- 8:30pm at Ben Franklin Place. Although this is not the main meeting on the issue, it will help push things along if people in the community sign up, go, and push our three main points. Councillor Chiarelli is asking this because his office was not notified of this meeting, hence the late notice on our part to you.
Please assist us in reaching out to your community and encouraging residents to attend this consultation, as well as let them know to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, stating our three main points.
1) We would like a residential room by-law that keeps a limit on the number of rooms rented out in a residence to 3.
2) Homeowners will be required to allow inspections of their home in exchange for the right to rent out 1, 2, or 3 rooms.
3) That this by-law covers only a tight geographical area around the college. No more than 2 km.
It is also important that we discourage people from trying to make too many other points, as maintaining consistency around this issue will be key to the success of reaching our goals of obtaining stricter by-laws.
