Will SF Make Airbnb Legit?

After more than six hours of public comment, the City Planning Commission voted in favor of supporting an altered proposed ordinance legalizing Airbnb, VRBO, and other short-term rental services. The proposal from Board of Supervisors President David Chiu would legalize and impose restrictions, such as limiting the number of days each year that a unit could be rented out.

The commissioners want added provisions limiting the use of below-market-rate units, funding enforcement, and giving landlords 30 days to register objections to their units being used for these services.

The proposal will be heard at the Land Use Committee in September before heading to the Board of Supervisors for a vote.
