Council member Tovo and Council member Martinez are sponsoring three separate rental registration pilot program ordinances and related evaluation program. Each ordinance covers a specific area of the City: the North Austin Civic Association and Rundberg area; the East Riverside/Oltorf area; the Central Austin Neighborhood Planning Advisory Committee, Northfield and Hyde Park neighborhoods They do not address all the impacts of dorm style/ stealth dorm housing —the displacement and destruction of affordable single family homes; the location of multi- family housing in single family neighborhoods or the large number of unrelated occupants currently allowed—-but they help with major problems associated with rental properties. These pilot rental registration ordinances deserve community support. Email the Mayor and Council. To Email all, go to www.austintexas.gov/mail/all-council-member
