S.C. VACATION RENTAL PROPOSAL 06-21-10 07:50 a.v.
A regulation on vacation rentals is expected to be proposed during a Santa Cruz County Board of Supervisors meeting tomorrow. Supervisor, John Leopold will propose the new regs, which would cap the number of rentals between Capitola and Santa Cruz as well as introduce new restrictions. In an effort to regulate unincorporated vacation properties in the beach communities of Pleasure Point and The Santa Cruz Harbor and everything in between, Leopold will propose the ordinance including a permitting system for rental properties, a ban on events like wedding receptions and business retreats, required stays of at least a week and mandatory signs that let neighbors know whom to call should problems arise. Supervisors are set to meet at 9 a.m. tomorrow to discuss Leopold’s proposal.
