3. Moratorium on Short-Term Rentals for West Marin

Preview

Agenda Item #7: The Board will hear a request from the Community Development Agency to adopt an ordinance extending a 45-day interim urgency ordinance that established a moratorium on new short-term rental registrations in the West Marin Area, also known as the Measure W or West Marin Transient Occupancy Tax (TOT) Area, for an additional 22 months and 15 days, and also issue a report describing the measures taken to alleviate the condition which led to the adoption of the moratorium ordinance. The ordinance applies to properties in the unincorporated areas in central and western Marin, from Dillon Beach/Tomales to the north, San Geronimo Valley and Nicasio in central Marin, and the communities of Muir Beach, Stinson Beach, and Bolinas to the south. 

Review

The Board adopted the ordinance.

4. Barring Evictions During COVID-19

Preview

Agenda Item #8: The Board will hear a request from the Community Development Agency to adopting a resolution barring evictions of residential tenants for nonpayment of rent due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Housing displacement is still a considerable concern in Marin County during the public health emergency. State eviction protections are scheduled to expire on June 30. The proposal would extend protections from June 30 through September 30. Approval would follow a tradition dating to the first local eviction moratorium the Board installed in March 2020. Federal, state, and local protections for residents have helped prevent a proliferation of homelessness since then.

Review

The Board adopted the resolution.
