Last night the San Luis Obispo City Council voted to suspend enforcement of the vacation rental ordinance for residence stays while staff continues to work on the issue.
City Council also directed staff to fast track an ordinance to make residence stays an additional allowed use in Section 17.22 (Table 9 - Uses Allowed by Zone) and provide a clear path and procedure for hosts to obtain a license or permit and pay their TOT and TBID taxes.
We see the suspension of enforcement as a step toward victory and understand that our work is not over until there is an acceptable ordinance in place. For this reason, we are going to continue to collect signatures on this petition.
We are relieved, encourage and grateful for all the support we have received. Our heartfelt thanks goes out to all. Cheers!
