Item No.: 1
Time: 1:05 PM
Applicant: County of Sonoma
Cont. from: November 18, 2021
Staff: Gary Helfrich
Env. Doc: Permit Sonoma has determined that the project is categorically exempt from the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) pursuant to sections 15307 and 15308 as Vacation Rental regulation standards continue, add, or enhance requirements related to wastewater management, refuse management, noise, outdoor burning, and emergency evacuation and further protect natural resources and the environment from potential impacts related to Vacation Rentals. The Ordinance is further exempt under CEQA Guidelines section 15061(b)(3) because it can be seen with certainty that the project will have no significant effect on the environment, because the Ordinance imposes additional regulations on a currently allowed use through the imposition of a business license, makes clarifying changes to existing standards, and establishes new administrative procedures.
Proposal: Proposed project would retitle Chapter 4 to “Amusements and Business Regulations” to define “Vacation Rental License”, and add Section VIII to Chapter 4 to establish a vacation rental business license program with new and enhanced standards, and make related amendments to Chapter 1 (General Provisions) Section 1-7.2., amend Section 26-88-118 (Special use standards for hosted rentals and bed and breakfast inns) to allow dual use rentals, and rescind and replace Section 26-88-120 (Vacation Rentals) to correspond with the new license program and amend Section 26-79 (Vacation Rental Exclusion Combining District) to clarify standards for exclusion and allow area-based Vacation Rentals permit limits in addition to exclusion.
