City toRegulateShort-Term 

 The city council is set 
Monday night to discuss 
a code amendment to add 
regulations for short-term 
rentals, including a limit to 
the number allowed around 
popular areas such as the 
Rose Bowl.

 According to the council’s 
staff report, “The proposed 
regulations [if passed by 
the council] establish a 
process for allowing certain 
types of short-term rental 
activity while responding to 
potential negative impacts to 
residential neighborhoods. 
Specifically, the proposed 
regulations would; establish 
a regulatory framework 
to allow home-sharing 
in one’s own primary 
residence (defined as the 
home where one resides at 
least 9 months of the year); 
Establish various tools 
and administrative fines to 
enforce unpermitted ‘STRs; 
Prohibit any person from 
advertising home-sharing 
that is not registered with 
the city and require hosts 
to register with the City and 
remit Transient Occupancy 
Tax (TOT).

 As of Sept. 2, approximately 
736 properties in the city 
were being advertised, as 
short term rentals. 

 The report also states 
that the area around the 
Rose Bowl is anticipated 
to draw short-term rental 
activity due to the sporting 
events, concerts and music 
festivals, etc. Therefore, 
setting a cap on the number 
of short-term rental units 
within a defined area 
around the Rose Bowl [5 
percent] as a method of 
curbing overconcentration. 

 Of the 2,526 dwelling units 
in the proposed Rose Bowl 
District a 5 percent cap 
would allow 126 rentals in 
the area.

 The council meets at 6:30
