5-13-020  Purpose and intent.
   This chapter shall be liberally construed and applied to achieve its purpose, which is to promote the public welfare by protecting senior tenants, including those senior tenants who need assistive devices or need reasonable accommodations, of affordable housing buildings undergoing renovation and rehabilitation resulting in the temporary relocation or internal transfer of those tenants. The legislative intent of this chapter is to advance the City’s vital interest in protecting senior tenants in affordable housing units, including those administered by the CHA, while promoting the habitability of affordable housing by requiring owners and developers to have a written relocation plan prior to receipt of City Funding to ensure that disruptions to those tenants are minimized.
