Culinary Union proposes ballot initiative to bring rent control to North Las Vegas

Amid skyrocketing rent rates across the state, the Culinary Union is proposing a ballot initiative that would focus on capping rent increases at 5% – but only in North Las Vegas.

Southern Nevada’s rent prices, which have shot up more than 20% in two years, have left tenants valleywide struggling to afford housing, and caused elected officials to broach the topic of rent control recently, though conversations haven’t materialized into action. 

The Culinary Union announced Wednesday it plans to have its “Neighborhood Stability” initiative on the ballot of North Las Vegas voters for the November election and, if approved, the measure would come with a retroactive effective date of May 18.
