Systematic Multifamily Common Area Inspections

To address unsafe conditions in multifamily housing, the City Council approved a two-year pilot program for the systematic inspection of apartment common areas in March of 2005.  Prior to this, in 2003, the Fire Chief established an Apartment Safety Task Force to study fire safety issues in multifamily buildings.  The ASTF recommended that the City establish a systematic multifamily housing inspection program in partnership with property owners.
