The City Council in Inglewood, Calif., passed a permanent rent control ordinance that caps rent increases at 5% annually. A group of local residents were the chief supporters and proponents of the measure that is designed to alleviate growing affordability issues in the Los Angeles area.
 
Some residents have experienced rent increases of 140% or more, according to a member of the group. The legislation includes eviction protections and establishes a rent board. There are also exceptions for the cap on rents.
