The rising cost of housing is one of the biggest purveyors of poverty. Over 20,000 households in Pasadena are spending more than 50% of their income on housing. This does not make for a vibrant community. Rent control combined with just cause eviction is a necessary and significant step towards stabilizing soaring rents that are pushing people out of our city. 70% of Black households are renters and 68% of Latino households are renters.
