  3. Discussion on holding a forum for candidates running for State House District 49. This is the House seat held by Elliot Naishtat, who is retiring.
  4. Time for HNA residents to discuss issues of concern.
  5. Other items.

* The occupancy limit of 4 unrelated adults was put in place to stop demolitions that were destroying both neighborhoods and existing affordable housing. The occupancy limit applies only to new construction. It is not intended to exclude renters, new comers, young people, or anyone else from neighborhoods. The purpose of the occupancy limit on new construction was to eliminate the incentive for developers to replace existing housing stock with purpose built houses intended only for high occupancy rentals. The new 6 bedroom houses that were build in neighborhoods (before the occupancy limit went into effect) were always more expensive to rent (per bedroom) than the houses that were demolished. Since it passed, the demolitions have virtually stopped. The occupancy reduction is working and should be made permanent. Also, 339,000 properties were grandfathered with the occupancy ordinance, that is, these properties retain the right to house 6 unrelated adults. The current occupancy ordinance will expire March 31st, unless the Mayor and City Council eliminate the expiration date.
