The City of Seattle is has a draft ordinance relating to fair chance housing but the proposal is wrong on three counts, as CDIA noted in a letter.  First, the proposal could make apartment communities more susceptible to crime by arbitrarily assigning a mythical point of redemption at two years.  Second, the bill takes away the ability of a landlord or property manager to consider arrests with pending charges, which threatens safety.  Third, the proposal incorrectly measures the timeframe in which a landlord cannot consider convictions.  The time should be measured from the date of release from incarceration, not from the date of disposition.
