Landlords, Rentals, & Regulations

In April 2011, sildenafil  over 300 people attended our first Voices of the Village meeting.  The diverse attendance included residents, stomach business owners, ailment town, school and village officials, the District Attorney, and many social service agencies. The meeting began by celebrating the many positives in our village.

Those present also identified several areas on which to focus our attention, and work continues on the following task forces:  Landlords (Private and Public), Tenants and Regulatory Enforcement;  Mentoring Children and Supporting our Next Generation;  Neighborhoods including Watches, Mutual Support, Street People and the Camps.  Initially, over 100 people signed up to work on the various task forces, and each task force continues to be facilitated by a member of the GHCA Board, along with a chair from a member of the community.

There is still time to be part of the solution. Send your concerns and ideas to the Civic Association at GreatHyannis@aol.com.

October 2012

Proper care and upkeep of rental properties is of concern for many neighborhoods in greater Hyannis. We have formed a task force that has been working over the past year to suggest revisions to the Barnstable Building and Property Maintenance Code, to the Barnstable Code for Comprehensive Occupancy, the Barnstable Code for Noise Violations, and we are proposing a new ordinance regarding the control and penalties for chronic problem properties.

To date, the Landlords, Rentals, & Regulations task force has met with and formed an alliance with the civic associations of several surrounding towns.  The focus of this task force concerns all citizen and visitors to the greater Hyannis area, and we welcome the support from our sister civic associations.  As stated in the Barnstable Patriot in July 2012, “the Landlords, Rentals, and Regulations group is starting to turn up the heat… and we hope to have support from all over [Barnstable] when the proposed changes are presented to the town council this fall.”

The following 5 Proposals will be presented to the Town Councilors on October 18 with the goal of being ready for public comment in November:

Proposed:  AMENDMENTS TO CHAPTER 59 OF THE TOWN OF BARNSTABLE’S CODE FOR “COMPREHENSIVE OCCUPANCY” (LAST REVISED IN 2006)

Proposed: PROPOSED REVISIONS TO CHAPTER 160 – CHRONIC PROBLEM PROPERTIES

Proposed: REVISIONS TO CHAPTER 54 OF THE HYANNIS BUILDING AND PROPERTY MAINTENANCE CODE

Proposed: REVISIONS TO CHAPTER 170 OF THE TOWN OF BARNSTABLE CODE FOR RENTAL PROPERTIES

Proposed: PROPOSED REVISIONS TO CHAPTER 133 OF THE TOWN OF BARENSTABLE CODE REGARDING NOISE

As Councilor Jen Cullum indicated in her Barnstable Patriot editorial in August 2012,  one way to make Hyannis better is to join the Greater Hyannis Civic Association and start working.
