Call to Action
Minimum Housing Code Regulations
September 19, 2019
We need your Support!!!
Equitable Communities agrees with the proposed language changes to the Code that will be presented to City Council on Monday 09-23rd. However, the proposed changes will not prevent another Lake Arbor situation from occurring in the future.
Please send the following text in blue to your City Council representative. Please open this LINK and scroll down for your City Council person's contact information. In addition, if you are passionate about supporting this position, please plan to attend the City Council meeting Monday evening. Finally, you may also sign up to speak against the Minimum Housing Code Revision.
Dear City Council Person,
We ask you to join us in requesting that the City Council and Mayor do not pass the revision to the Minimum Housing Code until/unless:
Acknowledge that the revisions are just the first step in making changes AND
Recommend that the Council’s Neighborhood Development Committee continue to work with the staff and community advocates to improve the escalation processes issues and staffing changes.
