Buelltonites Hash Out Vacation Rentals Ordinance

Neighbors Decide Future of the Vacation Market in the Santa Ynez Valley


Hashing out what sort of ordinance ought to address the countywide explosion of short-term homestays and full-blown vacation rentals, about 50 Santa Ynez Valley residents attended a recent Planning and Development workshop in Buellton. Talk on the issue covered the spectrum, from residential neighborhoods filling up with vacation rentals to ranch and winery owners renting renovated outbuildings to out-of-towners looking for a more authentic vacation experience. The county hosts a similar workshop at 6 pm on August 20 at Westmont College.
