New Business –
Short Term Rental Overlay Districts Proposed for Ocean Park and Cape Story by the Sea – Councilman Louis Jones and Councilman Jim Wood asked for an ordinance change to create STR overlay districts in Ocean Park and Cape Story which will allow “By Right” use of residents for STRs as long as they meet the guidelines in the code. At the City Council Oct 20 meeting, Ocean Park residents showed up in opposition and Councilman Jones removed the Ocean Park overlay from the ordinance. Councilman Wood has left the Cape Story overlay in place as a challenge to the residents to oppose if they want his overlay removed. If not, then 50% of Cape Story will be “By Right” STR. The BAC will vote at their Nov. meeting on a position for the Bayfont on STR. It is recommended that SDCC vote on a position statement for STR Overlays in the Bayfront and it’s proposed that all overlays be prohibited from the Bayfront.
November SDCC Meeting – Officers from the 3rd Precinct has asked to come to a November meeting to discuss a community policing plan for Ocean Park and other neighborhoods that are experiencing vandalism and break-ins. They plan to do a survey of neighborhoods to gather input on issues. SDCC is working with them to create and promote an online survey.
