CALL TO ACTION ON SHORT-TERM RENTALS

Monterey County Supervisors are about to approve a Vacation Rental Ordinance that would:
  • Allow 200+ vacation rentals in unincorporated Carmel and Carmel Valley residential neighborhoods
  • Permit commercial interests to rent vacation homes 365 days a year with no on-site supervision
  • Transform quiet residential neighborhoods into commercial zones
  • Increase problems with trash, parking, traffic and noise 
  • Contribute to housing scarcity and costs for long-term renters
  • Create ‘mini-hotels’ that compete with traditional resort lodging

Over 75% of area vacation rentals are managed by commercial entities, not by homeowners. The Monterey County Grand Jury recently recommended that any revised vacation rental ordinance should protect homeowners with an effective and strong enforcement system.

Carmel Valley Association is one of the oldest, largest, and most successful community organizations in Monterey County. We are entirely volunteer, with no paid employees. Our mission: To preserve, protect and defend the natural beauty, resources and rural character of the Carmel Valley. We accomplish it by working with residents, businesses, and government.

CVA was instrumental in the adoption of the Carmel Valley Master Plan and recently settled a lawsuit with Monterey County regarding traffic measurement and capping future development on very favorable terms for our valley.

Our volunteer experts represent Carmel Valley's interest, testifying before governmental bodies concerning development, water, traffic, road signs, and other environmental issues.

We keep valley residents informed about important issues and events with our weekly email Bulletin, which is sent to over 1,300 residents, and our quarterly Newsletter, which is mailed to over 7,000 valley addresses.
