The Del Mar City Council voted Monday to establish a temporary moratorium on new short-term vacation rentals while the city works to craft and adopt new regulations.
As of Monday, the moratorium will be in effect for 45-days. The move comes after the city says they received complaints from the public about short-term rentals regarding increased traffic, noisiness and trash buildup.
City officials say the moratorium will allow continued operation of existing short-term rentals if the owners can prove that they were officially operating before the moratorium was enacted.
