HOSTED ORDINANCE (IN PROGRESS)

Updated 8/18/22 - The City’s Short-Term Rental Unit Hosted Ordinance, which requires the presence of an onsite host during short-term rentals, primary residency, and multifamily restrictions, was submitted to the California Coastal Commission (CCC) for certification review. On August 12, 2022, the CCC held a public hearing and voted to deny the City's Local Coastal Program Amendment (LCPA) Short-Term Rental Unit Hosted Ordinance. The CCC denied the City's LCPA, that an ordinance which requires the presence of an onsite host during short-term rentals of single family residences would reduce the availability of STRs in the City and that the City did not have a sufficient number of other accommodations such as hotels to make up for the potential loss.  The CCC encouraged the City to work with its staff to reach a mutually agreeable resolution and return to the Commission with a revised ordinance.

Background

On November 23, 2020, the City Council adopted Ordinance No. 472 (Hosted STR Ordinance) to establish provisions to regulate short-term rental of property citywide which include, but are not limited to, requiring the presence of an onsite host during short-term rentals, primary residency requirements and multifamily restrictions. On November 5, Council conducted the first reading of the Hosted Ordinance and adopted Resolution No. 20-51, amending Local Coastal Program (LCP) Land Use Plan (LUP) Chapter 5 accordingly. See the November 23 staff report and November 5 staff report for more information on the Hosted STR Ordinance. The Hosted STR Ordinance involves an LCP amendment and Zoning Text Amendment to the Malibu Municipal Code. The Hosted Ordinance regulations cannot go into effect until the LCPA is certified by the California Coastal Commission.
