Anaheim survey provides an opportunity to share opinions on short-term rentals


ANAHEIM, Calif. (Nov. 17, 2015) - The city of Anaheim is seeking input on short-term rentals with an online survey available now through Dec. 4

The survey, available on the city's website, is designed to gather additional input and opinions as the city reviews current regulations and considers potential changes to its short-term rental program.

The survey is an easy way for residents and short-term rental property owners to express their ideas and concerns. Results will be shared at two community meetings in December:

  • Dec. 9, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., Anaheim West Tower, 201 S. Anaheim Blvd. (Workshop designated for short-term rental owners and operators)
  • Dec. 10, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Downtown Community Center, 250 E. Center St. (Workshop designated for residents)

Approved in 2014, the short-term rental program is the city of Anaheim's framework, rules and regulations for residential rentals brokered by Airbnb, Homeaway, VRBO and others. The program currently covers 400 short-term rentals in Anaheim that are licensed or have previously submitted applications under review.

In October, the city extended a previously adopted moratorium on new short-term rental licenses through May 3, 2016. The pause allows the city time to review its current regulations and identify any changes necessary to address community concerns. 

In addition to the online survey, any comments or questions can be emailed to or by calling a short-term rental designated phone line at (714) 765-5362. To learn more about the city's short-term rental policy, please click here.
