We Are Roseville - September 1, 2020


September 1, 2020

New statewide COVID-19 tenant and landlord protections enacted

Under the new legislation, no tenant can be evicted before February 1, 2021 as a result of rent owed due to a COVID-19 related hardship accrued between March 4 – August 31, 2020, if the tenant provides a declaration of hardship according to the legislation’s timelines.

For a COVID-19 related hardship that accrues between September 1, 2020 – January 31, 2021, tenants must also pay at least 25 percent of the rent due to avoid eviction.

Tenants are still responsible for paying unpaid amounts to landlords, but those unpaid amounts cannot be the basis for an eviction.

Landlords may begin to recover this debt on March 1, 2021, and small claims court jurisdiction is temporarily expanded to allow landlords to recover these amounts.

State develops new COVID-19 response framework

Governor Newsom released a new COVID-19 response framework called the Blueprint for a Safer Economy.

Placer County Public Health: "Placer's placement into the State's 'purple' tier is due to inclusion of data from early August, when we were still on the former Monitoring List. We expect to have news around movement to the 'red' tier and additional easing of restrictions around Sept. 8 if trends continue in the right direction. However, this transition has created further delay for schools, and we have written to CDPH to express this concern.”

Placer County has also received information from CDPH indicating that schools will be allowed the option to resume in-person instruction on September 1, as they would have after coming off the previous Monitoring List.

Roseville's future housing blueprint needs your input

The City is starting to update the housing blueprint for Roseville, known as the Housing Element. The Housing Element considers the City’s needs for housing access, inventory, affordability, and quality. It is a critical part of the City’s efforts to preserve, improve, and develop housing accessible to everyone in our community. 

While some of the City’s housing goals are likely to remain the same, such as enabling the construction of high-quality housing, improving the existing housing stock, and providing new affordable housing opportunities, the City wants to make sure the update enhances the quality of life for all residents and provides opportunities for sustainable and affordable housing.
