In recent years there has been a steady and significant increase in the operation of short-term rentals (STRs) or Temporary Rental Units, across the country. This has been fueled, in part, by the rise in new on-line hosting platforms and other websites devoted to the marketing and management of STRs. This growth has raised concerns within many communities, including those within unincorporated Ventura County. In response to these concerns, the Board of Supervisors in 2015 directed staff begin evaluating STRs and their impacts upon the community.
