YUCCA VALLEY PLANNING COMMISSION DISCUSSES SHORT TERM RENTALS

The Yucca Valley Planning Commission held its first public hearing last night on its draft ordinance concerning short-term vacation rentals. Managing editor Tami Roleff said commissioners heard from residents who spoke on both sides of the issue…
At last night’s meeting of the Yucca Valley Planning Commission, commissioners heard from residents opposed to short-term vacation rentals in their neighborhoods due to loss of privacy, noise, and trespassing—and from those who hope to use short-term rentals to finance their retirements. A majority of commissioners felt the requirements for a minimum 1-acre lot size, with rentals spaced a minimum of a half mile apart—were too onerous on short-term property owners. Commissioners were also against allowing short-term vacation rentals in multi-family homes, condos, and apartment buildings. Commissioners agreed that having a sign on-site with 24-hour contact information was a good idea. Commissioners learned that only 25 short-term vacation rentals have permits with the town, and collect the transient occupancy tax (TOT) of 7 percent. The commissioners continued the public hearing to their meeting of May 23.
In other business, the commissioners denied a variance request by Steak n Shake to install murals on the outside walls of its restaurant, and after much discussion about perpetual requests for extensions, approved a request for a time extension for a mini storage facility on Old Woman Springs Road and Paseo Las Ninas.
