Vacation Rental Ordinance
Document Type
NEG - Negative Declaration

Document Description
The proposed project would add Section 13.10.694 to the County Code to regulate vacation rentals, which are currently not regulated. The proposed vacation rental ordinance would: 1) apply countywide; 2) require a permitting/registration process; 3) require payment of Transient Occupancy Tax (TOT); 4) require signage identifying a structure as a vacation rental and a local contact responsible for responding to complaints; 5) require a dispute resolution process; and 6) subject the property owner to the enforcement provisions found in County Code Chapter 19. The proposed Ordinance would apply to apply to all residentially zoned parcels located within the unincorporated portion of Santa Cruz County. In the "Live Oak Designated Area" only, limits on the total number of vacation units in the area and on any block would be established.
