Coastal Commission disagrees with City on the proposed ban & certain regulations on Short Term Rentals in the coastal zone and may deny the ordinance under the LCP.

The California Coastal Commision staff does not support nor agree with the ban on registration of new short term rentals in the coastal zone in the City of Santa Cruz. The current proposal by the City of Santa Cruz to restrict STR in the coastal zone may be denied at the upcoming CCC hearing in April. In fact, according to the Coastal Commission staff, the emergency city ordinance is invalid within the coastal zone.
