The City Council adopted regulations regarding short-term lodging unit (STLUs) throughout the City. These regulations provide standards for Short-term Lodging Units ("STLU") and Short-term Apartment Rentals ("STAR"), where allowed in compliance with Title 17, Zoning, and Chapter 3.24, Transient Occupancy Tax, of the municipal code. STLUs and STARs are lodging uses (which are inherently commercial), typically located within structures designed for long-term residential tenancy. As such, special consideration must be given to STLUs and STARs to ensure that the existing character of residential neighborhoods are preserved and not adversely impacted.
