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.

The county hosts a similar workshop at 6 pm on August 20 at Westmont College.
