After the recent spate of suspected arson-ignited fires around the Castro, Supervisor Scott Wiener, in whose district (District Eight) the affected neighborhood falls under, is putting forth a proposal today that would aid victims of fires and other natural disasters by offering below market housing rentals.
SF Appeal reports that, “Wiener said tenants displaced by fires, earthquakes and other disasters are left without viable housing options in the city.
“The last thing they should have to deal with is where they should be housed,” he said.
The ordinance would allow tenants to enter an agreement for up to two years at either what they were paying at their previous residences or at up to 10 percent above that rate, Wiener said.”
