From The Virginian-Pilot:
Renters make up 45-50% of the people living in Norfolk, according to Michelle Johnson, city director of neighborhood development.
“I think it’s important for people to realize that it takes renters, homeowners and everyone in between to make up neighborhoods of choice,” she said.
That is why the city has partnered with the Norfolk Redevelopment and Housing Authority and Rent Ready Norfolk to create the first Landlord Summit 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. March 3 in the Chartway Arena in Old Dominion University’s Ted Constant Convocation Center.
“We also want landlords to understand that we welcome them, but we want them to be good neighbors as well,” Johnson said. “We want them to have viable properties in the city because we do have people who are renting and they need quality housing.”
