Delayed: Airbnb Decision

The S.F. Board of Supervisors postponed a vote this week on two dueling proposals to alter the existing short-term rental law. Supervisor Mark Farrell, who has proposed one measure along with Mayor Ed Lee, requested the continuance for more time to discuss a possible compromise. But Supervisor David Campos, who has proposed a competing measure, called on the board to vote. The decision is delayed until July 14, reports The Examiner. Those who want tighter controls on home shares say landlords are taking hundreds of rentals off the market, exacerbating the city's tight housing stock and astronomical prices. The stricter of two proposals to alter the home-share laws would limit rentals to 60 days a year. [TE]
