How is a proposed overlay reviewed and acted on?
  1. Once City Council introduces a rental restriction overlay ordinance, a moratorium is placed on the issuance of any initial rental licenses within the proposed boundary of the district. This will apply to any applications submitted prior to or subsequent to the ordinance introduction. Any rental license applicant may request a refund of the application fee if an overlay is approved.
  2. Next City Council refers the ordinance to the Planning Commission for review and recommendation to City Council. The Planning Commission will hold a public hearing at one meeting and typically at a subsequent meeting, take action to recommend City Council approve or deny the ordinance. When Council receives the Commission’s recommendation, the City Council schedules and holds a second public hearing before taking final action to approve or reject the ordinance.
  3. If an ordinance introduced is denied, a subsequent ordinance for a rental restriction overlay district for the same parcels cannot be introduced again for another year.
  4. An ordinance which is not adopted within six months of introduction will be deemed denied by lack of action.
