Rebecca Kaplan's Plan To Stop Displacement In Oakland #OakMtg - Video
Oakland At Large Councilmember Rebecca Kaplan has a plan that she says will stop displacement in Oakland. Here it is: Vice Mayor Kaplan submitted last week the following actionable items that City Council can approve to immediately address the displacement crisis in Oakland: 1) Amend our relocation assistance requirements to cover the real costs that tenants face when forced to move and adopt an amended ordinance to increase the required relocation assistance amount, and applying it more consistently; 2) Fund a community based outreach strategy to provide public education about laws protecting tenants’ rights; and support enforcement strategies that will provide the enforcement of laws protecting tenants’ rights, discourage unjust evictions, and reduce violations; 3) Promote rapid rehousing for those in danger of homelessness by funding a rental assistance program to enable people to pay first month, last month, and security deposit.
