Home Owners for Vacation Renting Oahu started this petition to Governor David Ige and

Dear Mayor Kirk Caldwell,

Please save the vacation rental industry on Oahu Hawaii.

The Mayor is trying to regulate and create rules for Vacation Rentals on Oahu. The state and city has made lofty investments to improve travel infrastructure to increase Tourism. Bill 85 &Bill 89 will immediately devastate the vacation rental home owners, our Real Estate and Tourism industries, and the rest of our economy by extension. These bills basicaly make vacation renters criminals and charge ridiculous fines.

The hotel industryis behind this movement to stop vacation renting even though there occupancy is at 90% which is great. They want to be able to increase the nightly rate to stay in Hawaii so they can make a lot of money for the big corporations, knocking out there small family & local business competition.

The City is about commit economic suicide with Bills 85 & 89 as proposed. Ron Menor’s Bills are so one sided and does not help the city with revenue for our much needed projects or the local families in any way. It’s all enforcement driven to hurt local families. So many jobs will be lost and families impacted. This chain reaction taking 2+ billion annually out of the State and City will negatively impact all. Loss of revenue for the State programs and some property Values will drop, collecting less Property Taxes in the end for the government. There will be a dump of properties on the market and many pulling out their investments here causing overall economic .

Please Collaborate with the City Council and Veto Bills 85 & 89 as proposed. It kills all in Vacation Rental Industry. Local home owners with a 2nd home will pull out of this market and will not continue to pay high Residential A high taxes, without a revenue stream. TAT taxes, GE taxes also help the State with competing the Rail. These Bills will tail spin this economy into a immediate recession.

Vacation Rental accommodations are a real travel trend that fills a real market demand, it has main stream appeal that would be incredibly irresponsible to ignore.....especially as one of the premier travel destinations of the world. This is where Hawaii needs to be cutting edge and not behind the trend. Please help find legislation that embraces Vacation Rentals in a responsible manner.

If they make vacation renting illegal, then only the UBER rich will have access to beachfront homes in Hawaii. When you want to spend 5 nights on the beach in Kailua or Sunset Beach, you wont have access. UBER rich only use there homes a few weeks to a couple months a year. They will just shut the home down until they return. Vacation rentals allow the averager family a chance to rent the home for a few days and enjoy a relaxing lifestyle on the beach at an affordable value compared to hotels.

To help all and reduce complaints, enforce a noise ordinance from 9pm to 8am, collect a 3% tax for the city or an annual Registration Fee for the city for B&B & TVU’s licensees. This in turn will help the communities and will help in the infrastructure of Oahu. 

This city needs to be small business friendly Bill 85 & 89 as proposed will kill many small businesses and destroy our economy. Please help... VETO Bill 85 and 89 as there is no fairness in these Bills.

Mahalo & Aloha
