CCC Says HSO Not Legal Without Coastal Development Permit

(2 July 2019) California Coastal Commission (CCC) says Venice needs a conditional development permit (CDP) for the implementation of the Home Sharing Ordinance (HSO) that went into effect 1 July.

Shannon Vaughn, district supervisor for South Coast area of California Coastal Commission, says Venice will need a Coastal Development Permit to be legal.

So far the council office has not responded with a statement for the Update regarding this situation.

Taylor Bazley, former Venice deputy for Councilman Mike Bonin, stated in a letter to Judy Goldman of Keepneighborhoodsfirst, “We are implementing the home sharing ordinance everywhere in the City and including the Coastal Zone. It is our attorney’s opinion that we are well within our legal grounds to do so without an amendment to our land use plan or file with the Coastal Commission.”
