Policy Discussions

Short Term Vacation Rentals (Grundland)

Currently there is no limit to the number of short-term rentals that can get permitted on the San Diego coast. This is a problem because 2,252 Tier 3 whole house STR licenses remain to be given. In La Jolla, many coastal streets have a high ratio of STRs to number of residences. Without a city rule to cap the density of short-term rentals by street, block, and neighborhood, our entire coastline is close to becoming another form of Mission Beach (their STVRs are capped at 30%). The end result will be families will not be able to afford to live here, and schools will not thrive. What will this area be like in five years if the proliferation of short-term rentals isn’t stopped? Bird Rock already has streets with 21-33% of their ocean front homes being short-term rentals. Beach Barber has streets with 28% STRs.

Municipal Code Updates (Kane)

The Land Development Code (LDC) contains regulations for the development and use of property including zoning, subdivisions and other related land use activities.  The Planning Department monitors and continually updates the code to simplify and streamline the permitting processes, assure compliance with state and federal regulations, and eliminate unnecessary barriers, redundancies and contradictions.
