ONN – City Of Oakland Rent Adjustment Program Annual Report Video – video by the YouTube channel in the video’s upper left hand corner.

The preparation of an Annual Report to the Oakland City Council regarding the status of the Rent Adjustment Program(RAP) is mandated in Oakland Municipal Code (O.M.C.)Section 8.22.050.A with required components identified pursuant to Measure JJ, approved by voters in November 2016. The last Annual Report presented to the City Council covered four years, from July 1, 2014 through June 30, 2018. The hiring of the new RAP manager in October 2018 created the capacity to complete the delinquent reports and bring them current throughfiscal year 2017-18. The report was presented to the Council in April 2019 and therefore did not include data for fiscal year 2018-19. As such, this report includes both fiscal years 2018-19 and 2019-20.

Fiscal years 2018-19 and 2019-20 were extremely productive for the Rent Adjustment Program. RAP increased internal efficiencies and targeted outreach strategies that applied an equity framework to increase the services provided to the community. Significant achievements during the reporting period are detailed below, and include:

  • Robust community outreach and educational programming
  • Creation and distribution of numerous informational materials (information sheets, postcards, and guides) regarding the rent program and Oakland’s rental housing laws
  • Increased availability ofholistic housing counseling services
  • Eliminated the backlog of appeals cases and processing of petitions
  • Partnering with the Neighborhood Law Corps to combat false owner move-in evictions and tenant harassment

Following the Background section below, the Annual Report provides information on the following areas for the reporting period:

2.Community Outreach and Education
3.Petitions and Appeals
4.Rent Board Activities
5.Financial Reporting

Note from Zennie62Media and : this video-blog post demonstrates the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media , Inc. mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of Zennie62Media , Inc.’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. What we call “The Third Wave of Media”. The uploaded video is from a YouTube channel. When the video is “liked” by Zennie62 YouTube, then it is automatically uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Now site and Zennie62-created and owned social media pages. The overall objective here, on top of our is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours – is the use of the existing YouTube social graph on any subject in the World. Now, news is reported with a smartphone and also by promoting current content on YouTube: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary, or having a camera crew to shoot what is already on YouTube. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media content news production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
