65 Families Face An Average 120% Rent Increase, Forced Displacement, Eviction Threats
Midtown is the only city owned apartment complex that is not public housing, the tenants have paid off the property mortgage in 2007. A lot of tenants lost their Fillmore based Victorians to eminent domain during the civic redevelopment and were promised equity ownership upon mortgage satisfaction.
However that promise has been broken, instead we face eviction threats from Mayor’s Office of Housing, promising to start evicting people on 10/12
It’s time for Midtown to take over the City Hall. Public officials have been deaf to our pleas asking them to stop willful destruction of our community.
We’ve written letters and called. We came to Board of Supervisors hearing. We filed the largest rent control petition in San Francisco history and lost. No housing attorney in San Francisco will take our case.
Now we must do what people who can’t get their voices heard do – take our case directly to the people in charge. We’ll be doing a large sit-in until we get our 30 minutes with the mayor, we’ve been asking for this opportunity for months – but were denied.
