Goleta’s Short-Term Rental Ordinance Now in Effect

In February, the Goleta City Council passed a short-term rental ordinance that became effective on July 1.

The city is asking for help from short-term rental owners in registering their properties.

This ordinance will help protect and preserve the residential character of neighborhoods where vacation rentals operate. Some of the goals behind the adoption of the ordinance were to provide the city and law enforcement better tools to properly regulate these uses as well as create a registry that could track where and how many of these uses have been permitted.

This ordinance also provides a mechanism for people to object to a permit before and after it has been issued.

More information on the program and the forms needed to apply for a short-term rental permit can be found by clicking here.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
