The FCBR Government Affairs Committee was not pleased to learn that the draft plan for the West Central neighborhood includes a recommendation to consider a landlord registration program. The plan will go before the City Council on March 17, leaving FCBR without adequate time to prepare a position on the issue.
FCBR has traditionally opposed any landlord registration proposal, but its bylaws don’t allow for the Board of Directors to take a position on an issue within such a short timeframe. However, individual REALTORS can voice their opinion on the West Central Area plan at the meeting on the 17. Note: The fact that the landlord registration program would only affect the West Central neighborhood is curious; landlord registration requirements rarely apply to one specific neighborhood.
