7. Appeals - Time Certain - 7:30 PM

Appeal RWN-1321 - 930 Page Street. This is a property owner appeal of the hearing examiner's decision that found that the property needed to be registered pursuant to the rent ordinance. On appeal, the owner argues that, because there is a door between the two separately rented spaces in the building, the structure should be considered a single-family house that is exempt from the Ordinance even though each rented space has its own mailing address and gas and electric meter and the connecting door is permanently closed. There is substantial evidence in the record to establish that there are two dwelling units on the property that need to be registered with the Rent Board. Therefore, it is recommended that the decision of the hearing examiner be affirmed.
