On June 22, 2021, the City Council approved Resolution No. 2021-62 to terminate the local emergency.  This action repeals Emergency Ordinance 2020-04 which had placed a moratorium on the issuance of new short-term lodging permits.

For waitlist applicants – PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT CITY STAFF. Short term lodging permits will be processed in the order received on the waitlist.  City staff will reach out to waitlist applicants by email with application and payment remittance information.

Please note – if contacted, waitlist applicants will have FIVE (5) BUSINESS DAYS to return the completed paperwork.  If the applicant does not return the completed paperwork in that time, they will be removed from the waitlist and the next applicant will be contacted.

If you no longer are requesting a short term lodging permit(s), please contact and request to be removed from the waitlist. 

If you would like to apply for a short term lodging permit, the waitlist is still open.  Please ensure you meet ALL the criteria below before joining the waitlist.   

  • The property to be permitted is located in a residential district and zoned for short term lodging;
  • You are the legal owner of the property.  You are not eligible if you do not hold title and/or are in escrow;
  • The property is not part of a Homeowners Association whose CC&Rs prohibit short term lodging; and
  • A short term lodging permit for this property had not previously been revoked.

First, verify that your property is zoned for short term lodging.  You can search your address here.
