Subject:
title
Approve for Introduction Ordinance No. 4224 amending the Huntington Beach Municipal Code by adding Chapter 5.120 (Short-Term Rentals)
body

Statement of Issue:
The proposed new chapter of the Huntington Beach Municipal Code (HBMC) would establish a set of regulations, standards, and a permitting process for Short-Term Rentals affecting residential districts citywide. The purpose of Chapter 5.120 (Short-Term Rentals) is to protect the character of residential neighborhoods, maintain the long-term rental housing stock, and ensure the collection and payment of Transient Occupancy Taxes (TOT).

Financial Impact:
Should the City Council vote to amend the Huntington Beach Municipal Code by adding Chapter 5.120 (Short-Term Rentals), the proposed regulations will require the development of application forms and review and approval processes to accommodate the issuance of Short-Term Rental Permits by the Community Development Department, as well as Business Licenses and Transient Occupancy Tax Certificates by the Finance Department. In addition, Code Enforcement and the Police Department staff will respond to complaints relating to short-term rental activities. The proposed amendments to the Municipal Code is estimated to realize $233,095 annually in TOT and Tourism Business Improvement District (TBID) administrative cost revenues. Additional costs associated with the implementation and regulation of the Short-Term Rental program will be offset by revenues generated from this program.

Recommended Action:
recommendation
Approve for introduction Ordinance No. 4224, "An Ordinance of the City Council of the City of Huntington Beach Amending the Huntington Beach Municipal Code by Adding Chapter 5.120, Regulating Short-Term Rentals" (Attachment 1).
