Is San Diego turning BLUE?

The residents who are upset about beach vacation rentals are wealthy, longtime owners of million dollar real estate. They ain’t blue, they’re purple.

San Diego STVR BANNED/limited as of July 2019?  Ouch.  

I guess I may be able to get my beach house at a discount sooner than I thought?  ;-)


 San Diego passes a lot of dumb 'blue' type laws (like you can't use section 8 as a factor when looking to rent to someone.  wtf is that all about?  Idiot liberals.  Sorry, not sorry), but I wouldn't call this one of them.

People's opinions about STR don't seem to have a direct correlation with their other political leanings. On average, I'd guess 'most' people who want to ban STR are left leaning only because they're more likely to favor a larger government controlling what people do with their own property. While those on the right want a smaller government and to be left the hell alone.

But there is overlap on this issue. 

I think the str ban is more a nimby issue than a political party issue. I am guilty of it myself as we have an STR in Mission Beach (STR since 1999) but I would not desire an STR next door in Poway.
