Urgency ordinance- Effective march 25, 2020 - September 30, 2020

Updated November 17, 2020 

Concord’s Urgency Ordinance was adopted on March 25, 2020, imposing a moratorium on evictions and rent increases for certain residential and commercial tenants in the City of Concord experiencing a documented substantial decrease in household or business income caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.  Concord’s urgency ordinance was drafted to be concurrent with Governor Newsom’s Executive Order N-28-20, and stated that it would run concurrently with that Order and would be automatically extended if the Governor extended the timeframe of that order beyond the September 30, 2020, sunset date.  The Order was not extended, therefore Concord’s Urgency Ordinance expired on that date.  COVID-19 hardship related residential and commercial tenant protections are now subject to AB 3088 and to the urgency ordinance adopted by Contra Costa County. For more information, please visit the Tenant & Landlord Resources page.

La Ordenanza de Urgencia de Concord fue adoptada el 25 de marzo del 2020, imponiendo una moratoria a los desalojos y aumentos de alquiler para ciertos inquilinos residenciales y comerciales en la Ciudad de Concord experimentando una disminución sustancial documentada en los ingresos domésticos o empresariales causada por la pandemia COVID-19. La ordenanza de urgencia de Concord fue redactada para estar a la par con la Orden Ejecutiva N-28-20 del Gobernador Newsom, y declaraba que se ejecutaría simultáneamente con esa Orden y se extendería automáticamente si el Gobernador extendiera el plazo de esa orden más allá de la fecha de vencimiento del 30 de septiembre del 2020. La Orden no se prorrogó, por lo que la Ordenanza de Urgencia de Concord expiró en esa fecha. Las protecciones de inquilinos residenciales y comerciales relacionadas con las dificultades del COVID 19 ahora están sujetas a la AB 3088 y a la ordenanza de urgencia adoptada por el Condado de Contra Costa.
