Rent Control

Dear Menlo Park City Council:

Rent control of any kind adversely affects those it hopes to help, whether
it mandates relocation fees, caps rental increases, or extends notice
requirements. It results in fewer rental properties, causes landlords to
charge the highest prices they can for vacant properties, and negatively
affects both renters and property owners.

The best way to mitigate ever-rising rents is to allow more units per
property by down-grading requirements for R-3 lots that currently exist in
Menlo Park (downgrade the lot square-footage requirements, allow second
stories, increase lot coverage percentages). There are strict requirements
for granny-units that can be downgraded as well without negatively
impacting neighborhoods.

Thank you,
Louise DeDera
