The Inglewood City Council passed a permanent rent control ordinance Tuesday, which will cap rent increases in the market at 5% annually. The measure is a response to growing housing affordability issues throughout the greater L.A. area. A group of local residents called the Uplift Inglewood Coalition were the chief supporters and proponents of the measure.

“This rent control ordinance was so critical because we have had tenants experiencing rent increases of up to 140% and beyond,” D’Artagnan Scorza, Ph.D., executive director of the Social Justice Institute and a member of the Uplift Inglewood Coalition, tells GlobeSt.com. “We have been deeply concerned about the impact that this has had on our residents in the community and we wanted to make sure that this ordinance would protect both our newer residents as well as to support people that have been here for decades, especially our seniors and veterans that are on a fixed income.”
