Cook County tenant protection ordinance primed for vote after fresh round of tweaks
A proposal to extend a version of Chicago’s tenant protection rules across Cook County is on track for preliminary approval on Tuesday, capping off more than six months of intense back-and-forth lobbying between housing organizers and real estate groups.
The Cook County Board of Commissioners Zoning and Building Committee is scheduled at 2 p.m. Tuesday to vote on an updated draft the Residential Tenant and Landlord Ordinance (20-3562) that would give landlords slightly more leeway than a version that narrowly missed a vote last month.
