Short-Term Rentals - Coastal Commission Suggested Modifications
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
Adoption of the California Coastal Commission (CCC) suggested modifications to the Short-Term Rental (STR) Ordinance as part of the Local Coastal Program (LCP). The modifications made by the CCC are summarized as follows: 1) allow for up to 350 non-primary residence STRs in the coastal zone each year; 2) limit the ability of building owners to prohibit short-term rentals, unless such restrictions were explicitly in place prior to the adoption of the State Coastal Act in 1976; 3) avoid cumulative impacts to public access from individual short-term rental restrictions; and 4) maximize public access for all people by including a commitment to non-discriminatory services and American with Disabilities Act (ADA)-accessibility information.
