Lawrence Apartments Association Food Drive
Effective January 1, 2015, all rental properties in Lawrence are required to maintain a valid rental license in compliance with City Ordinance 8840. Earlier this year, the Planning and Development Services staff held several meetings for landlords, property managers and owners to get information about the program, inspection requirements and general information. Those meetings were well attended and the city is now offering two more informational meetings for landlords, property managers and owners to meet with staff and ask questions and/or just learn about the program.

The meetings are set for Friday, November 14 from 10-11:30 a.m. at Fire Station #5, 1911 Stewart Avenue and Thursday, November 20 from 6:00 - 7:30 p.m., also at Fire Station #5. The same content will be covered at each meeting.

The City Commission voted to expand the city's rental registration and licensing program in April 2014. Since that time, the city staff has worked to develop inspection guidelines and develop a process to allow for all rental properties in Lawrence to be licensed.

"We strongly encourage owners, landlords and property managers to attend an upcoming meeting and meet our staff, learn about the program, and visit with us to discuss any issues or concerns they have ahead of the program beginning in January 2015," said Scott McCullough, Director of Planning and Development Services.

Program information, including inspection guidelines and license applications, are available online at Rental registration staff can be contacted by email at or by calling (785) 832-3345.
