The City of Ventura is seeking community input on the regulation and enforcement of short-term vacation rentals (STVR) in Ventura through an online survey at https://www.cityofventura.ca.gov/172/Short-Term-Vacation-Rentals. The input will inform staff recommendations that will be presented to the City Council early next year. The survey is open now through November 27, 2018.
Short-term vacation rentals are residential units that are rented for less than 30 consecutive days. These units are currently allowed in the City with a permit and consistent with existing regulations. The City may consider amendments to the existing regulations and enforcement.
Before taking the survey, community members are encouraged to review the STVR information on the City’s website that includes the Municipal Code, performance standards, how to report violations, and other various materials at https://www.cityofventura.ca.gov/172/Short-Term-Vacation-Rentals. Community feedback from previous public meetings is also on the website. For questions please call the Business License Office at (805) 658-4715.
The Ventura City Council directed staff to engage various stakeholders and the community to review and consider possible changes to the short-term vacation rental ordinance and related policies.
