It’s necessary. It makes it so that the average Santa Cruz resident can live here.

It’s going to happen, but it will be ineffective because people will figure out a way around it.

I think rent should be determined by the income of the area.

There should be rent control in Santa Cruz. Not everyone is high tech, not everyone has a lucrative job, and as Silicon Valley prices push people out, it’s driving the prices up everywhere else.

Great for renters. Should have happened 15 years ago. Not so great for homeowners.
