Survey on Short-Term Rentals

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version
03/25/2015 - 5:00pm

UPDATE - Thursday, March 26, 2015: The online survey will close on Friday, March 27th.  If you haven't already weighed in, please do so before midnight tomorrow.  Thank you!

* * * * *

UPDATE - Friday, March 13, 2015: There was a great turnout at yesterday's March 12th Planning Commission workshop on short-term rentals.  The Commission engaged in a thoughtful discussion with community members about the potential positive and negative impacts of short-term rentals, and how both could be balanced through targeted regulation.  After the discussion, the Planning Commission agreed to hold a follow-up workshop at their regular meeting on Thursday, April 9, 2015 where staff will review policies from other California cities and provide suggestions on how to address specific concerns raised by community and Commission members. 

Thanks to everyone who participated in the survey and/or the workshop, and please join us on April 9th.  If you haven’t yet filled out the survey, responses will continue to be collected through March 26th.  If you want to be updated as this effort moves forward,  e-mail Associate Planner Julia Capasso at jcapasso@ci.brisbane.ca.us to be added to the e-mail notification list.

UPDATE - Monday, March 2, 2015: We have a received a large number of comments on this issue and each will be sent to the City Council and Planning Commission.  Thank you again for your feedback!

* * * * *

Short-term vacation room or home rentals in privately owned homes have grown in popularity in the Bay Area thanks to online advertising websites like Airbnb.com.  The City’s regulations predate Internet-based homesharing, and short-term vacation rentals are currently prohibited in residentially-zoned neighborhoods in Brisbane.  The  Brisbane City Council has asked the Planning Commission to further study this issue, evaluate the City’s regulations, and make recommendations.

As a Brisbane resident, what do you think?  Your input is critical in this effort.  Join the dialogue by filling out a community survey online and/or attending the Planning Commission workshop on March 12, 2015 at 7:30 p.m.  Hard copies of the survey are also available at the Library, the Planning and Building Department at City Hall, and on page 2 of the March STAR (landing in mailboxes next week).  To ensure that everyone's voice is heard, we ask that only one response be submitted per resident.  If you have any questions or comments, please contact Associate Planner Julia Capasso at (415) 508-2120 or jcapasso@ci.brisbane.ca.us

Thank you in advance for your feedback!
