Join the Effort to Stop City Council Bill 220299
Legislation Will Impact Housing Affordability & Cost Condo Owners Tens of Thousands of Dollars to Comply
RSVP Below to Attend the Philadelphia City Council Meeting on March 16
CAI has been monitoring legislation (Bill 220299) in the City of Philadelphia that would require the installation of fire sprinkler systems in all existing high-rise condominium, cooperative and apartment buildings (buildings higher than 75 feet), costing unit owners and renters between $20,000 to $50,000 per unit. Beyond the impact on both market-rate rental housing and individually owned condominiums, this bill could devastate affordable housing in the city due to the astronomical cost of compliance.
Residents of Condos and Co-ops in Philadelphia can help. Attend the March 16, 2023 Meeting of Philadelphia City Council at City Hall to make your voice heard. Please note – this is not a hearing on this Bill and public comment on this Bill will not be permitted during this meeting. We are attending to show members of City Council that condo and co-op owners in Philadelphia are engaged on this issue and that we oppose this Bill. RSVP below to attend on March 16. More specific details will be sent to those who RSVP a few days prior to the City Council meeting.
