TITLE

And adopt resolution directing the Director of Development Services to submit the Ordinance amendments to the California Coastal Commission for review and a finding of conformance with the City’s Certified Local Coastal Program.  (Citywide)

DISCUSSION

At its meeting on November 17, 2020, the City Council requested an amendment to Chapter 5.77, “Short-Term Rentals”, of the Long Beach Municipal Code (LBMC) to primarily lift the prohibition on, and regulate, un-hosted short-term rentals (STRs) within the City. The City Attorney prepared the revised draft Ordinance, which is attached in an accompanying item, for the City Council’s consideration, approval and adoption.

 

The purpose of this specific item is to notify the public that the City Council will be considering whether to adopt the amended Ordinance as an urgency/emergency in accordance with Long Beach Charter section 211, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic and applicable Health Orders, including provisions related to the operations of STRs.

 

Since the CDC has stated that unhosted Short-Term Rentals are a safe lodging option that has the lowest exposure to additional people, we encourage the City Council’s approval of urgency so individuals traveling for the holiday have additional options of safe places to quarantine.
