Short-Term Rental Ordinance

Overview

On October 10, 2016, the City Council directed staff to explore options for regulating short-term residential rentals of properties within the City.

Project Status

On July 9, 2018 and September 26, 2018, the City Council held public hearings to consider the proposed ordinance and directed staff to return with additional information and analysis, including a financial analysis on the implications of a potential ban on short-term rentals, approaches to using the Local Coastal Program amendment process, the approaches of other coastal cities, and other information. Work on the ordinance was temporarily delayed following the November 2018 Woolsey Fire. On October 3, 2019, the Administration & Finance Subcommittee of the City Council received a draft presentation of the financial analysis and provided comments.  On October 28, 2019, staff will return to Council with a report on the information requested by Council at its September 26, 2018 meeting including an updated presentation on the financial analysis.
