City staffers released draft recommendations Wednesday for an ordinance that would allow at least some short-term renting in San Diego. Emails obtained by VOSD indicate a measure was ready in early July but the mayor’s office held it when Council members disagreed on some of the specifics.

Data shows that a large chunk of short-term rentals in San Diego are run by big companies, not individual owners. Proponents of a ban on non-owner-occupied short-term rentals say that’s a formula for disaster. Those companies say it’s just the opposite: Unlike individual operators, they have the resources to police problem tenants.
