Depending how you define "rent control", in the City of Fremont there are three ordinances that may apply (from the COF website):

Affordable Housing Ordinance-
The City of Fremont's Affordable Housing Ordinance was amended on October 4, 2011. The purpose of this ordinance (Title VIII, Chapter 2, Article 21.7 of the City's Municipal Code) is to foster an adequate supply of housing for all persons at all economic levels, thereby ensuring the preservation of an economically balanced community.

Mobile Home Rent Stabilization Ordinance-
The City of Fremont Municipal Code (Section 3-13100) contains the Mobile Home Rent Stabilization Ordinance that clarifies the process through which rents can be increased at mobile home parks within the City. Rent increases shall generally be limited to one increase in any consecutive 12-month period.

Residential Rent Increase Dispute Resolution-
The City of Fremont's Residential Rent Increase Dispute Resolution Ordinance (RRIDRO) became effective on August 21, 1997. This ordinance applies to all housing units (apartments, condominiums, and single-family homes) and provides rental residents and owners with steps that they can undertake to resolve rent increase disputes.

Strictly speaking, there is no rent control

However, there is a city ordinance that allows for mediation in the event there is a rent increase dispute.
