Push For Rent Control In Minneapolis

Rent control has long been talked about in Minneapolis, and now it is getting closer to becoming a reality. A measure will be on the ballot this November, asking residents if they think City Council should have the power to draft a rent control policy or if such an ordinance should be voted upon by residents in a future election.

While the details on what a rent control measure in Minneapolis would look like are still to be determined, it would involve setting rent increase caps on rental property owners.

If the November measure passes, the changes will be put into the city charter and would become legally effective December 3rd.
