SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the DP Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.

City Council approved a measure on Nov. 1 to request the California Coastal Commission to hold off on voting on the city’s short-term rental (STR) ordinance until the Registrar of Voters verifies signatures from a referendum recently circulated in town that would repeal the ordinance or put it to a vote of the people.
The Coastal Commission previously had the STR ordinance on the Nov. 4 agenda, but marked it postponed once Council approved the decision.
The referendum was turned into the Registrar in October.
