Evictions Averted

After serving residents of the Vallejo Emery, a Chinatown SRO, with eviction notices, the building's owners have reversed course and withdrawn all of the previously issued evictions. Mayor Ed Lee and Supervisor Julie Christensen both contacted the owners and property managers of the building to let them know that the city would fight the evictions. Chinatown housing organizers note that the proposed evictions were significant because they were among the first gentrification efforts among Chinatown's extensive SRO housing stock.
