Short Term Lodging Ordinance Revisions

On April 23, the City Council voted to approve revisions to the City’s short-term lodging ordinance. Changes to the ordinance include:

  • Continuing to exclude new short-term lodging units in residential zoning districts
  • To permit short term lodging units only in the same commercial mixed-use districts, (mainly downtown and Coast Highway corridor properties)
  • Existing permitted short term lodging units in residential zones will be grandfathered into the ordinance
  • Allows existing residential units in the commercial mixed-use districts that do not currently meet short term lodging standards be converted to short term lodging units
  • Prohibits affordable housing, senior housing, or disabled housing units from conversion to short term lodging.
  • Short term lodging hosting platforms will be responsible for Transient Occupancy Tax to the City
  • Short term lodging hosting platforms will also see an increase in the penalties for violations of the ordinance

The ordinance passed to a second reading which is tentatively scheduled for next month.
