Goal of Residential Rental Inspection Program
Public engagement is key in creating and applying a program that works for all and promotes the health and safety of city neighborhoods.
The purpose of the Residential Rental Inspection Program is to address the issue of substandard long- term rental properties, promote greater compliance with health and safety standards and preserve the quality of Arcata’s neighborhoods and available housing. The program achieves compliance of health, safety and welfare code violations in/on residential rental properties that are a threat to the occupant's safety, structural integrity of the building, and a negative impact on the surrounding neighborhoods.
