When voters have a say, short-term rentals win!
Over 62,000 San Diegans — nearly twice the amount needed — signed the petition to stop the de-facto ban on short-term rentals because they agree there is a better solution than the onerous law that was passed. Short-term rentals are an important property right that help owners, managers and hosts earn valuable extra income, contribute needed tax revenue to the city’s budget, and have long been part of the fabric of San Diego. We believe there’s a better way and look forward to a resolution whether it be by the city or the voters.
After the City Clerk provides a notice of sufficiency to the City Council informing them that our signatures are valid, the Council will have 10 business days to either rescind their whole-home vacation rental ban or send it to the ballot for San Diegan’s to decide. Their decision will happen at a public hearing in October. It will be important to attend this hearing and we will keep you posted on the date and time once those details are finalized.
The qualification of this referendum isn’t the end, in fact it’s just the beginning of what promises to be a long battle to bring a reasonable compromise on short term rentals to the table in San Diego. We need your help to continue to fight this unconscionable ban, so please help by donating now.
