Specifically, the proposed ordinance would:

● Define and establish a regulatory framework to legalize and regulate home-sharing in

one’s own primary residence (where one resides at least 6 months of the year)

● Require hosts to register with the City and limit home sharing to 120 days in a year

● Clarify and support the requirement to collect and remit Transient Occupancy Tax (TOT)

● Reiterate that vacation rentals and other short-term rentals not covered by the City’s

approved use definitions are unlawful

● Establish various tools and administrative fines to enforce illegal short-term rentals

● Prohibit any person from advertising home-sharing that is not registered with the City

● Require hosting platforms to disclose to the City on a regular basis the name of the host,

the address of each listing, length of stay for each listing, and the price paid for each

stay, subject to privacy protections

● Ban the ability of residential apartments to be converted to short-term uses, by modifying

the Transient Occupancy Residential Structure regulations in the zoning code

● Direct the Transient Occupancy Tax generated from home-sharing towards pro-active

enforcement of the ordinance and the Affordable Housing Trust Fund
