Concord educational Rental Housing Workshop July 26

The Concord City Council will host a Rental Housing Workshop on Tuesday, July 26 at 7 p.m. at the Concord Senior Center, 2727 Parkside Circle, as part of its regularly scheduled meeting. The educational workshop is similar to the one held June 27 before the City Council Housing & Economic Development Committee.

The City Council asked for the workshops after hearing from Concord renters that the monthly rates for their apartments were being greatly increased, sometimes month after month. The workshop will feature an educational panel that includes a Bay Area housing expert, providing an overview of current rental conditions, and representatives from the California Apartment Association and Tenants Together, an organization representing renters. The goal is to provide information on the issue to elected officials, City staff and the community.

For more information, contact Planning Manager Laura Simpson, (925) 671-3369.
