Short-term rental compromise short on support at La Jolla Town Council meeting

Short-term rental compromise short on support at La Jolla Town Council meeting

More than 50 audience members jammed the La Jolla Town Council meeting on Sept. 14 to hear a proposed City ordinance that would place limitations on short-term La Jolla rentals.

They did not like what they heard.

The proposal, from District 1 City Council member Barbara Bry's office, would allow only resident owners to rent their homes for fewer than 30 days at a time, and would limit the number of short-term rental days to 90 per year. It's a compromise between La Jolla homeowners with opposing interests — those who want the right to sublet their houses for extra income in the summer and those who want to prevent La Jolla from becoming the next Pacific Beach.
