Renters in East Palo Alto were successful Tuesday in approving increased protections for tenants and landlords with the passage of Measure H.
Supporters of the measure argued that it would protect tenants against unfair rent increases and require just cause for evictions. It also guarantees landlords fair returns on their investments.
There were no opponents organized against the measure.
The East Palo Alto City Council placed the measure on the ballot after extensively talking to tenants, landlords, homeowners and housing activists, all of which supported it. Passage repeals an existing ordinance.
