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
