Cities and Counties throughout California increasingly agree that short-term vacation rentals (STVRs) in residential zones are contrary to the character of their communities, and damage the quality of life for their residents. By the dozens these municipalities are banning STVRs.

In most instances, the cities and counties on this growing list have “permissive” Municipal Codes, like San Diego’s. That means, if a use if not listed for a zone, it is not permitted.

Santa Barbara and Santa Monica, along with other cities, have simply reiterated that they will enforce their Municipal Codes, with do not permit short-term vacation rentals (STVRs) in residential zones. This action keeps the California Coastal Commission from stepping in and telling cities how to operate.
