"For the first time in decades, a city council in San Mateo County is about to enact controversial tenant protection measures. Pacifica renters could see some temporary relief from rising rents or sudden evictions after the coastal City Council narrowly voted Monday to place a moratorium on landlords issuing steep increases or removing tenants without cause. The rules would be temporary as the council returns next month to discuss placing a measure on the November ballot — a year after divisive elections in Burlingame and San Mateo voters ended without changes. Six Bay Area cities had rent control measures on last year’s ballot with those in Richmond, Mountain View and Oakland succeeding. In San Mateo County, only East Palo Alto has such provisions for renters.Pacifica Tribune/Jane Northrop/Staff Writer, 4/26/17. "A divided Pacifica faces rent control again."
