We encourage members with property in Alhambra to reach out to your Council Member and let them know that rent control is not the answer to housing affordability and increased housing supply as it will not result in the creation of a single affordable housing unit. Furthermore, rent limitations and tenant protections are already in place in Alhambra pursuant to state law, Assembly Bill 1482, so there is no need for the City to set up a costly infrastructure to administer a local rent control and tenant protection regulation.
We will be closely monitoring this issue, advocating for our members interests and providing updates.
