I realize this was generated by home away, but please read;

The Los Angeles City Council will discuss an ordinance addressing secondary, whole home vacation rentals at LA’s Planning and Land Use Committee (PLUM) meeting on Tuesday, March 12, 2019 at City Hall.

This is the most sensitive time of the policy planning process, and we only have a few days to help shape the new law. Please take a minute TODAY to contact to your councilmembers and ask them to support a policy that allows secondary, whole-home rentals.

From the moment the city council voted on December 11th, the clock started ticking. If a secondary ordinance is not in place by July 1st, whole-home vacation rentals will be effectively banned in the City of Los Angeles.

It’s important that councilmembers understand how their votes will affect your livelihood if a fair secondary home ordinance isn’t passed.

This ordinance will be shaped from the many stories you share with your councilmembers. The more people that get involved in the movement, the stronger our voice will be heard!

Thanks! I signed it.

We don’t have a second home on Airbnb in LA but we did in Northern California and to get rid of second home rentals is a ridiculous ban. These are not affordable housing units. They are most likely multi million dollar homes. Why let them go vacant?

I totally agree. If you read up on the numbers generated by the vacation rental business it is far more income for the city relative to the number of units/houses available which is .08 percent of all housing available for rental.
