After listening to residents for about two hours, the Anaheim City Council voted unanimously on Tuesday to extend a moratorium on new short-term rentals until May, like those found on Airbnb, Homeaway and VRBO.
“It changes the nature of a neighborhood,” said Anaheim Mayor Tom Tait.
But while Anaheim is tightening its leash on short-term rentals, the city of Santa Ana seems to be welcoming them.
Santa Ana City Council members on Tuesday eagerly tossed out that city's emergency moratorium, put in place last month.
"I’m a huge supporter of the shared economy,” said Councilwoman Michele Martinez. “Certainly, my goal is not to be restrictive, prohibitive and overreaching."
