The first reading of the proposed revised Short Term Rental (STR) Ordinance has been postponed from next Wednesday, July 19 to Wednesday, September 6. This delay is necessary to allow for an amended Mitigated Negative Declaration (MND) effort. In addition to the preparation of the MND itself, there is also the requisite California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) noticing and State agency consultations that must accompany the process. Further, there is a public comment time period as well. Accordingly, the City Council is now tentatively scheduled to consider the proposed revised STR Ordinance on Wednesday, September 6. The City thanks the public for their consideration and understanding for this requisite delay.
