Short Term Rentals: Are they compatible with residential communities? Are efforts to limit them an affront to property rights?
Internet-based STR companies such as Airbnb have built a burgeoning industry connecting homeowners with vacationers, who rent out rooms or entire houses for short-term stays. It’s a fascinating example of the New Economy, but this new business model has run up against stiffer opposition than expected.
These room-sharing operations have been very popular with tourists and those who rent out their properties. But the main obstacle to their growth has been residents in neighborhoods where STRs are commonplace, especially in beach and tourist areas in Southern California. Continue reading

Term-limited Orange County Supervisor John Moorlach has decided to run for the 37th State Senate District, which has been vacated by Mimi Walters, who is going to replace John Campbell in the U.S. House of Representatives, according to the Flash Report.
What this means is that Moorlach, who is well known for having predicted the Orange County bankruptcy (which was caused by a Democrat, Bob Citron, who was the OC Tax Collector-Treasurer at the time), will be facing off against State Assemblyman Don Wagner.
Wagner could have a tough time dealing with those opposed to his “openness to amnesty, as evidenced by a controversial letter that he signed addressed to members of Congress from late last year. Wagner was one of two local Assemblymen out of a total of 15 Legislators statewide who were signatories to a letter encouraging Congress to pass an amnesty bill, according to the OC Tea Party Blog.
