Residential Tenant Eviction Moratorium

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, a residential tenant eviction moratorium is currently in place that prohibits all evictions of residential tenants through May 31, 2020 (subject to certain limited exceptions). More details can be found in the April 3, 2020 Amended Rules and Implementation Measures document. Please email the Housing Division at residential.eviction@culvercity.org or call (310) 253-5790 if you have any questions.

On March 16, 2020, the City issued a Public Order that landlords may not evict a residential tenant if the tenant is able to show inability to pay Rent due to circumstances related to the COVID-19 pandemic. On March 20, 2020 the City issued additional rules with details about the residential eviction moratorium.

On March 27, 2020, the City Manager issued a Public Order that expanded the scope of the existing moratorium on residential tenant evictions (except those necessary for public health and safety) and extended such moratorium through May 31, 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This followed an extensive discussion and direction by the City Council at its meeting on March 26. The expanded provisions in that Public Order state that residential tenants do not have to show an inability to pay rent because of circumstances related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

On April 2, 2020, the City Council adopted a resolution confirming the March 27, 2020 Second Supplement to the Public Order issued by the City Manager. On April 3, 2020, the City Manager issued amended rules and implementation measures regarding the residential tenant eviction moratorium.

Temporary Parking Enforcement Until Further Notice Infographic

On-Street Parking on Street Sweeping Days

While parking enforcement on street sweeping days has been temporarily suspended, street sweeping services are still occurring. Understanding that the street sweeper must maneuver around parked cars, many residents have inquired about the relaxed enforcement, and on their own have moved their vehicles off of the street on posted street sweeping days.  

The City kindly requests motorists to move their cars when possible on street sweeping days during this relaxed enforcement period. If there are any leaves or trash in the curb area that the sweeper cannot reach because of parked cars, the City asks residents to sweep such material out into the street beyond the parked cars an hour or so before the scheduled sweeping time. Or, residents can sweep up the materials and place in their green bins for collection.

Homelessness 

The City has been closely working with the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA), the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (DPH) as well as city and county partners to develop and implement a coordinated COVID-19 response related to people experiencing homelessness. Currently, there are about 60,000 people experiencing homelessness in Los Angeles County, 236 of whom reside in Culver City.   

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued interim guidance on responding to COVID-19 among people experiencing unsheltered homelessness. HUD also maintains prevention and guidance response for homelessness service providers. Serving people who are experiencing unsheltered homelessness is extremely important because those without shelter, especially those who also have certain underlying medical conditions, are at greater risk for severe disease. Outdoor settings may allow people to increase distance between each other, but sleeping outdoors often does not provide protection from the environment, easy access to hygiene and sanitation facilities, or connections to healthcare. In addition to the City providing existing homeless services, City staff are collaborating with neighboring cities and developing creative solutions with Culver City businesses. 

City staff, along with the Culver City Police Department’s Mental Health Evaluation Team (MHET) have conducted outreach and will continue to reach out to people in the City currently experiencing homelessness to provide the following important information: 

  • Up-to-date information from the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health about the recent spread of COVID-19 in the area 
  • Social distancing recommendations and advice to avoid crowded areas 
  • Hand hygiene instructions, cough etiquette instructions, and advice not to share personal items 
  • How to recognize the symptoms of COVID-19 and what to do if you are sick 
  • What to do if friends, family, or community members are sick 
  • How to isolate if you have symptoms 
  • Updated information on where to find food, water, hygiene facilities, regular healthcare, and behavioral health resources 

In addition to providing unsheltered residents with important information relating to COVID-19, a Culver City team made up of CCPD MHET, firefigher paramedic personnel, and City staff perform weekly outreach to check in on individuals living in encampments and in their vehicles. To date, the City outreach team has passed out hand sanitizers, ensured the installation of three hand washing stations at the City’s largest encampment, and has partnered with Grace Diner and Culver Palms Methodist to distribute education and hand sanitizers with their to-go dinners. The team continues provide individuals with information about LAHSA’s extended Winter Shelter program and is actively working to bring portable toilets to the location. Regional efforts have ensured that there are hand washing stations throughout Los Angeles County. During this pandemic, staff is committed to outreach to and protecting our unhoused communities throughout the City.
