Coastal Commission Position on Malibu’s Short-Term Rental Hosted Ordinance,
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, is currently under review by the California Coastal Commission (CCC). CCC notified the City that it is leaning towards denying the City’s proposed Local Coastal Program Amendment (LCPA) for the Ordinance, but is willing to work with the City towards a mutually agreeable modification to the LCPA before considering it. Staff prepared a summary of issues for the Council's consideration. On June 13, the City Council discussed the CCC's position on the LCPA (City Council staff report) and moved to: decline the CCC's invitation to further weaken the Hosted Ordinance; direct staff to explain to the CCC that the Hosted Ordinance actually increases the availability of short-term rentals in Malibu serving the public’s coastal enjoyment; that the City will be forced to begin strict enforcement of its existing zoning laws to prohibit short-term rentals in residential neighborhoods if the CCC does not approve the City’s ordinance to enable short-term rentals. City staff is currently preparing a letter to CCC.
