San Diego City Council votes on new short-term rental regulations

MISSION BEACH (KUSI) – After seven long years for residents of Mission Beach and Pacific Beach, San Diego City Council has voted to put a cap on the number of vacation rentals allowed in high tourist neighborhoods.

Advocates in key tourist areas have been calling for regulations for years and say this will be the first time regulations have been put on an industry they feel has been a free-for-all since the mushroomed popularity of trendy vacation rentals like Airbnb and Vrbo.

KUSI’s Hunter Sowards was live from Mission Beach with more information on that vote.
