Kingston Rent Guidelines Board votes to reduce rents by 15 percent

The board also voted to create a three-year lookback period for fair market rent appeals that will allow tenants a one-time challenge to their base rent, to which all future adjustments will be applied.

The board vote was six to three with the negative votes coming from tenant two tenant representatives and a public representative.

The rent reductions came months after the effort was organized by tenants, For the Many, and other grassroots groups, including Citizen Action, Mid-Hudson Valle DSA, and Housing Justice for All.
