Responsible Landlords

This Seattle model should become an example for City of Santa Barbara. Their concept is outstanding, as they are many steps ahead of us. 
There are several sections within this org that fits and matches our "unique"' situation in the West Downtown Neighborhood and throughout the city. More importantly, they offer solutions and crime prevention strategies to improve conditions.  
Responsible "landlording" is essential, as the tenants they choose significantly influences the neighborhood. Too often, landlords, like employers do not properly screen tenants--this overlooked action can, and more often that not, creates challenging situations for the neighborhood. Careful and proper screening prospective tenants protects landlords, tenants, and the ultimately the neighborhood!
