3. The final report of the Public Participation Working Group was sharply critical of the City’s current processes for obtaining the public’s opinion about important issues, and recommended many changes to these processes. Do you agree with the report’s conclusions and recommendations?

The SmartRegs compliance deadline is Dec. 31, 2018 (which represents an eight year compliance timeline). As of July 31, the progress with SmartRegs compliance is that 18,673 (or 93%) of the ~20,000 licensed rental units are engaged in the SmartRegs process and 15,435 (77%) of those units are compliant. As for older, potentially more difficult homes to reach SmartRegs compliance, the city has a “technically Impractical” exemption process. Staff is posting that application process on the city’s website by the end of this week. I will be anxious to see what they come up with, but I have been satisfied with their program management so far!
