HOSTED ORDINANCE (IN PROGRESS)

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.  

On September 8, 2021, the California Coastal Commission granted Coastal Commission staff a one-year extension to consider the City's LCP amendment. During the next few months, City staff will work with CCC staff on addressing any suggested modifications to ensure that an amendment is brought to a hearing in the near future. Prior to the hearing, a Notice of Public Hearing will be published in a local newspaper and a CCC staff report will be available on the CCC's website.
