A study session has been scheduled for the meeting, during which the commissioners, at the direction of the City Council, will pick up where they left off with their review of Vacation Home Rentals.
In February, the Planning Commission had requested direction from the City Council to either continue or terminate discussion of a possible Development Code Amendment to establish standards for allowing and operating Vacation Home Rentals in the city. At its regular meeting on Feb. 9, the City Council unanimously sent the item back to the Planning Commission for further study.
“There are disadvantages and advantages to having Vacation Home Rentals in the community,” said Community Development Director Charles LaClaire. “If you have an opinion on this subject, please join us and share your opinion.”
Also on the agenda for the April 6 meeting will be a public hearing to review requests from seven property owners for a General Plan commercial zoning change involving 25 properties in the western portion of the city.
The public is encouraged to attend the meeting on April 6. For more information, contact City Hall at (760)367-6799 or go to the City’s website for Planning Commission agendas and staff reports at www.29palms.org.
