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.
The city council plans to continue discussions and listen to public input on the issue, and to direct staff on whether to move forward in preparing zoning ordinances to allow and properly regulate short term-rentals.
