The next public hearing regarding short-term rental (STR) regulations will be at the Malibu City Council meeting on September 14, 2020 at 6:30 PM. Based on Council’s direction at its August 10 public hearing, staff will present three draft ordinances:
1) Zoning Text Amendment (ZTA) No. 17-002, which was discussed on August 10
2) an Enforcement Ordinance, which is a revised version of ZTA No. 17-002 that removes the primary resident and other requirements in order to focus on providing enforcement tools against nuisance properties while the Hosted STR ordinance is processed
3) the Santa Monica-style "Hosted" STR Ordinance, which involves a Local Coastal Program (LCP) amendment and ZTA. The "Hosted" ordinance would require the presence of an onsite host during most short-term rentals.
The staff report is available on the City’s website https://www.malibucity.org/AgendaCenter/ViewFile/Item/4486?fileID=16465. If approved by City Council, the LCP amendment would have to be certified by the California Coastal Commission before the regulations could go into effect.
