Tell Your Elected Officials: Pass Rent Control in Marin!

Elected officials in Marin County

UPDATE: We've now reached over 3,000 total petition signatures! (The progress bar on this page only shows online signatures, not those collected in-person).


The cost of housing has exploded in Marin. The median home price is $2 million, while the median rent tops $2,000 a month. The only way that thousands of working people, young people, and seniors are able to make it here is to rent.

There is no rent control in Marin County, which means that renters are one unexpected rent increase away from being forced out of their homes and out of our communities. Please sign this petition if you agree that people should come before profits and that we should have rent control in Marin.

El coste de la vivienda se ha explotado en Marin. El precio medio de la vivienda es 2 millones de dólares, mientras que el alquiler medio supera los 2.000 dólares al mes. La única manera de que miles de trabajadores, jóvenes y personas mayores puedan vivir aquí es alquilando.

No hay control de alquileres en el condado de Marin, lo que significa que los inquilinos están a un aumento inesperado de los alquileres de verse obligados a abandonar sus casas y nuestras comunidades. Por favor, firma nuestra petición si estás de acuerdo en que las personas deben estar antes que los beneficios y que necesitamos un control de los alquileres en Marin.

The cost of housing has exploded in Marin. The median home price is nearly $1.5 million, while the median rent tops $2,000 a month. The only way that thousands of working people, young people, and seniors are able to make it here is to rent.

There is no rent control in Marin County, which means that renters are one unexpected rent increase away from being forced out of their homes and out of our communities. I urge you to support a rent control ordinance that would:

(1) Place an annual cap—based on inflation—on how much landlords can raise rents;
(2) Establish “just cause” eviction protections to prevent arbitrary evictions, keep students and teachers in their homes, and protect renters who are evicted due to no fault of their own.
