Protest Against Torrance City Council’s Proposed Ban Against Airbnb
Torrance City Council will discuss an ordinance to ban the use of Airbnb in city limits.
Pro-property rights advocates (and homeowners in general) will confront the Torrance City Council on Tuesday evening about their concerns for the full and free use of their property.
The city council begins on Tuesday, June 14th, 7:00pm
Torrance City Hall
3031 Torrance Blvd.
Torrance, CA 90503
“Property owners should have the right to rent out their rooms for extra income, and not worry about more government bans or overwhelming regulatory burdens,” said Arthur Schaper.
“We respect the concerns of city residents frustrated by abusive short-term renters, and the city should look into proper regulations to ensure the safety, security, and well-being of all residents.
“A blanket ban on short-term rentals will discourage property ownership within the city, as well as add further burdens homeowners looking to invest and build on their property for further revenue sources.”
Schaper continued: “The Torrance City Council has adopted too many top-down government ordinances to deal with localized concerns. Enforcement of existing ordinances would curb many of the quality of life concerns connected with Airbnb and other short-term rental programs currently operating in the city of Torrance.”
