Housing is an essential component of individual and community well-being, and renting continues to grow in popularity among City residents, making rental units an important part of the City’s available housing stock. Protecting renters from eviction, discrimination, and unreasonable late fees is important to the City’s social, economic, and environmental well-being.
Accordingly, the Tenant Bill of Rights, found in Chapter 20 of the City’s Municipal Code, was adopted by City Council on November 7, 2019 and put into effect on February 8, 2020. There have been three separate ordinances passed, which include certain requirements for landlords.

The Jamestown Townhouse and Apartment Complex is a 76-unit residential community designed for low-to-moderate-income residents. This unique housing community is owned and operated by the City of St. Petersburg and is located close to the heart of the City's downtown area.
Jamestown is a family-oriented residential community close to schools, shopping, and public transportation. It is operated by an on-site manager and maintenance staff. Management encourages Jamestown residents to seek home ownership and supports that effort through a variety of City and federal housing programs, and homebuyer education classes.
Named after the community activist Chester James, the townhouse section was the first of a four-phase redevelopment planned for the entire Jamestown residential area, an area formerly known as Methodist Town. The redevelopment combined an extensive residential rehabilitation program with total redevelopment of the area and new construction. Planners wanted to incorporate positive elements of the existing neighborhood with new amenities of pleasant urban living. The residences feature central heating and air conditioning, carpet or laminate flooring, electric appliances and many with laundry connections.
The management/leasing office is located adjacent to the complex in the Dwight H. Jones Neighborhood Center, 1035 Burlington Ave. N. and is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
