The City of Lawrence Planning & Development Services Department is hosting three educational seminars to assist property owners, property managers, tenants and the public with the transition to the recently adopted expansion of the Rental Licensing and Inspection Program (Ord. 8840). Current single-family zoned rental properties will be affected by these changes starting on July 1, 2014. All other rental units in the City of Lawrence will become part of the Rental Licensing and Inspection Program starting on January 1, 2015.
“Our goal is to make this a smooth transition by answering your questions regarding the regulations and logistics of the Ordinance,” said Scott McCullough, Director of Planning and Development Services. “At these meetings, we will review the initial licensing, license renewal and inspections processes, and provide plenty of time for a question and answer session.”
The seminars will be held on the following dates:
May 15th / 6:00-8:00 p.m. - Union Pacific Depot, 402 N. 2nd Street. This seminar will focus mainly on the transition of single-family properties into the expanded program, although anyone is welcome to attend. June 3rd / 10:00 a.m.—Noon - Douglas County Fairgrounds Dreher Building, 2110 Harper Street. This seminar will focus on all aspects of the program, from transitioning single-family properties into the new program and all rental properties within the city beginning January 1, 2015. June 18th / 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. - Lawrence Free State High School commons, 4700 Overland Dr. This seminar will focus on all aspects of the program, from transitioning single-family properties into the new program and all rental properties within the city beginning January 1, 2015.
