NEIGHBORS FOR LOS OSOS
PRESERVING CHARACTER THROUGH COMMUNITY OUTREACH
There are no official standards for issuing vacation rental permits in Los Osos. The County is currently approving each new permit without consideration of the guidelines established and approved by the Land Use Committee and the Los Osos
Community Advisory Council.
With no density standards in place, there are risks to the preservation of our neighborhoods and community.
The placement of vacation rentals to reduce their impact on neighborhoods is addressed by the Los Osos Vacation Rental Guidelines. For example, the guidelines state: There shall be a minimum of 9 lots between vacation rental properties, including the other side of the street and to the rear of the proposed Vacation Rental, or a minimum of a 500’ radius between properties, whichever is greater.
We support the Los Osos Vacation Rental Guidelines. Until they are officially adopted into the Community Plan, we ask the Department of Planning & Building to use them as their criteria for judging each vacation rental permit request, with special attention to the density guidelines.
