On November 2, 2021, Saint Paul voters approved a Residential Rent Stabilization Ordinance for the City of Saint Paul. The City is working toward an implementation date of May 1, 2022. Information about the City’s ongoing work to implement the Rent Stabilization Ordinance passed by initiative petition can be found here.

One area of focus is convening members of our community to collectively explore how to balance critical goals of equity and growth. The convening will include representatives from impacted stakeholder groups including renters, homeowners, advocates, experts, owners and landlords of various scales and configurations of rental properties, real estate finance and legal professionals, staff and others. 

This group will make recommendations toward improving and enhancing the rent ordinance by fostering a community conversation that carefully balances the interconnected needs of renters and landlords, while continuing to address our housing needs, advancing our economic growth goals, and our equity and affordability goals. Read more about this group, and view Rent Stabilization Stakeholder Group meetings here
