The Department of Housing and Community Development has been tasked by the City Council to make this ordinance fully operational in a very short time frame. The program is still in its infancy, and we all know that every new governmental program has its growing pains. To its credit, the department is working to balance the interests of residents, property owners, inspectors and regulators and has engaged with all of the stakeholders regarding this expansive program. As such, the department continues to make appropriate and sensible tweaks to ensure the program meets its objective. And, we agree — they have to get it right.
