Subject: Proposed Tenant Relocation Assistance Ordinance


Dear Mayor Mueller and Members of the City Council,

I urge you to reject the Tenant Relocation Assistance Ordinance proposed by the City’s Housing Commission. It is rent control and just cause eviction in disguise. 

The Housing Commission has expanded the scope of a relocation program beyond the City’s Counsel’s original intent – which was to pursue a relocation assistance program triggered when units are permanently removed from the market or vacated due to redevelopment.

Please do not create more legal hurdles and financial burdens on property owners. These proposals jeopardize my ability to continue provide safe, stable and reliable housing for Menlo Park residents.

Instead please continue working with housing providers to explore a true relocation assistance program that addresses situations when residents are displaced due to redevelopment. 

Thank you for your collaborative approach to addressing the region’s housing challenges.



Dawn Poston, 

Owner of 
40 Kent Place, Menlo Park
