Thank You for Your Support!
Thank you to the hundreds who showed their support at the nearly seven-hour City Council hearing and the thousands who sent emails asking the City to reject the Council President’s proposal.
As a result of your collective action, on November 1, the San Diego City Council voted 7-2 against Council President Sherri Lightner’s proposal to ban short-term rentals (STRs) in the City of San Diego, and directed the Mayor’s office and City staff to develop common-sense regulations for the industry.
But more work remains…
What you can do to continue supporting STRs in San Diego
As you know, a critical election is taking place on Tuesday, November 8 – not just nationally, but locally. On Tuesday, we will be voting for a new City Attorney and a new councilmember in the 9th District, who will play a critical role in the development of sensible regulations for the industry. As a result, it is important we elect Ricardo Flores for District 9 Councilmember and Robert Hickey for City Attorney.

Share San Diego advocates responsible property management and good neighbor policies whether it be a short term rental, long-term rental or an owner occupied home. We do not support policies that will trample property owner rights and negatively impact the tourism that San Diego depends upon as a major part of its economy. Short Term Rentals bring valuable, multi-tiered benefits to San Diego and its neighborhoods.
