City staff is in the process of working with stakeholders to formulate proposed revisions to the short term vacation rental ordinance consistent with its stated intent and purpose of protecting the public health, safety and general welfare of individuals and the community at large; monitoring and providing reasonable means for citizens to mitigate impacts created by the occupancy of short term vacation rental units; and implementing rationally based, reasonably tailored regulations to protect the integrity of the city’s neighborhoods. A report on the process and recommendations shall be submitted by staff to the City Manager on June 16, 2017.
