The Rental Housing Workgroup was approved by City Council to examine the issues related to the high demand for student housing due to student growth, the management of rental housing, and to address the need for non-student rental housing as well as affordable rental housing. The ultimate goal of the Rental Housing Workgroup was to develop planning, legislative, and policy recommendations that address these issues for presentation to Council for consideration.
