Bike-Free Apartments?!?

UPDATE! We have spoken with several of Santa Rosa’s largest property management companies, who collectively manage thousands of units. The consensus is that this lease provision is highly unusual. We will work with the original reporter to see how we can help to rectify their situation (without making them vulnerable to any retribution)

It has recently come to our attention that some apartment buildings in the city of Santa Rosa forbid residents to park bicycles on the property or keep them inside their apartments. Given our status as a Bike Friendly City, our need for more affordable housing, and the new emphasis on higher density housing near transit, this is unconscionable. We are researching the prevalence and  legality of this lease provision and what might be done about it; please contact us if you have experienced this in Santa Rosa or anywhere else in the county.
