Short-Term Residential Rental Regulations


The City of Oakland is preparing new regulations for the rental of residential dwelling units for periods of less than thirty (30) days. Short-Term Residential Rentals (STRRs) raise important questions about local priorities and the larger role they play in cities and neighborhoods. In cities with high housing demand, such as Oakland, there is a concern about the potential adverse impacts of STRRs on long-term housing supply and availability, affordability, and other impacts on our neighborhoods.
