Short-Term Rental Ordinance

A short-term or vacation rental is one where all or part of a residence is rented for less than 30 consecutive days.  The issue was raised by community members in regard to impacts on residential neighborhoods, and the fact that, while not permitted by zoning regulation or ordinance, there were at least 60 such rentals on the Midcoast in 2015.

In May 2015 the SMC Planning Commission conducted a Study Session on short-term rentals. County Counsel made a similar presentation at MCC in Aug 2015.  See MCC minutes for  8/26/15 and 7/8/2015 to follow this initial discussion.

At March 2016 public workshop the County received feedback on a first draft ordinance (see 3/8/16 minutes).  Short-term rentals would be an allowed use in single- and multi-family residential zones in the unincorporated San Mateo County Coastal Zone.  The use would be subject to a permit, payment of Transient Occupancy Tax (TOT), and other requirements. The TOT is proposed to go towards Midcoast parks.

In June 2016 a revised draft ordinance was released for a 6-week public comment period. Revisions included a limit of 180 nights per year unless the owner is present.
MCC comments 7/27/16  --  17 individual comments
Earlier public comments in meeting minutes:  7/13/163/8/168/26/157/8/15

In Dec 2016, the CEQA document (CA Environmental Quality Act) was released for public review & comment by Jan 20, 2017.

March 2017, the Planning Commission approved the ordinance and directed staff to consider adding additional public comments submitted during the meeting, in advance of the presentation to the Board of Supervisors (staff report). The Board of Supervisors will need to adopt, and the Coastal Commission certify the ordinance before it can go into effect. 

May 2017 Draft Ordinance

Planning Commission on May 10 approved another revised draft ordinance, incorporating changes suggested by CCC staff and members of the public. (staff report and draft ordinance)
