Come to the final vote of the Rent Guidelines Board TONIGHT at 5:30 PM.
Let's be there and build toward a bigger presence when the rent laws expire in 2015.
The hearing is at the Great Hall at Cooper Union, 7 E. 7th St. (corner 3rd Ave.) (Click on "read more" below for how to get there.) Appointed by the Mayor, the Board members will pick percentage increases - and a flat dollar amount increase for those whose rents are below $1000.
Speak out at the Rent Guidelines Board hearing on June 13th starting at 10 AM in lower Manhattan. If you can't do it then (and even if you can), come to the "People's RGB" in the Bronx on June 5th starting at 5:30 PM. Each June, the Rent Guidelines Board sets the percentage increase for rent stabilized apartments whose leases are renewed any time during the year period beginning the next
October 1st. This year, they're proposing the highest increases in a long time: PROPOSED INCREASE RANGE:
For one-year increase periods commencing on or after October 1, 2013 and on or before September 30, 2014: 3.25% - 6.25%
For two-year increase periods commencing on or after October 1, 2013 and on or before September 30, 2014: 5.0% - 9.5%
(The RGB will vote to pick some number in those ranges.)
