Renter’s Rights 101

Congratulations to Mt. Scott – Arleta Neighborhood Association for securing a small neighborhoods grant from SEUL (Southeast Uplift) and the Office of Community and Civic Life. The grant will be used toward a much-needed Renter’s Rights Training:

In conjunction with CAT (Community Alliance of Tenants) the MSANA will present a 2-hour training to help community members understand how to become better equipped at locating, securing and retaining affordable and adequate housing. Using an accessible, public location, we will offer free food, childcare and translation services to encourage attendance by communities that need this training most. Please see details below.

Thanks also to contributions and assistance from our partners in adjoining neighborhoods:

  • Foster-Powell
  • Creston-Kenilworth

Mt. Scott-Arleta Land Use Notices: Get Help

Did you know that your neighborhood association can offer assistance and support when you receive notice of a land use proposal or decision?

If you have questions about a notice, feel free to contact the Mt. Scott-Arleta Neighborhood Association (MSANA) Land Use Chair (msanalandusechair@gmail.com). We can help you understand and respond to notices.

Please keep in mind that responses to proposals and appeals of decisions are limited to addressing the relevant Zoning Code approval criteria. Not liking the idea of a new development does not mean that we can effectively oppose it! However, the MSANA Land Use Chair can help you understand your options in responding to land use notices.

Shoot us an email at msanalandusechair@gmail.com and we can work together on the land use issues that matter to you.
