Vacation Rentals Update

This is an important update on vacation rentals from Save San Diego Neighborhoods (SSDN). You may email ssdn@savesandiegoneighoods.org with questions.

“The City of San Diego will hold two meetings Wednesday on its short-term vacation rental draft ordinance. While both are open to the public, there will be limited time for comments.

Code Monitoring Team (CMT) Meeting
10:00-11:45 a.m.
Technical Advisory Committee
12:00-2:00 p.m.
Both on Wednesday, Oct. 14
Development Services Center / City Operations Building
1222 First Ave, San Diego, CA 92101
4th Floor Training Room

The draft proposal being considered is a poorly conceived ordinance that would legitimize mini-hotels in all residential areas in the City. It is opposed by Save San Diego Neighborhoods (SSDN), as well as the city-wide Community Planners Committee, which voted 24-3 against it on Sept. 22.

Both SSDN and the CPC are asking the City to enforce its current Municipal Code, which both groups – along with a growing number of land-use and legal experts – say prohibits STVR in residential areas.

Following the two meetings on Wednesday, the City’s Planning Committee will consider the draft ordinance on December 3. Everyone who can is urged to attend that meeting, also. Details will be released closer to the meeting, but please add it to your calendars now.

Please check http://www.SaveSanDiegoNeighborhoods.org in the coming days for updates in this critical period for those trying to protect their neighborhoods and homes from the proliferation of mini-hotels. In a nutshell, our numbers are growing, good things are happening, but we are still searching for a champion in City Hall to stand up and say: “Enforce the current Municipal Code and keep mini-hotels out of our residential areas.”

Also, be sure to sign our online petition asking the City to enforce its Municipal Code, and ask 5-10 of your friends to do the same. It will make a difference.”
