End of an Era?
A group of residents and small hotel owners are attempting to put an end to the city's rich history of home sharing and vacation rentals. They are pushing the city’s leaders to impose an excessively restrictive ordinance that compromises this unique Palm Springs lifestyle. With your support, we can preserve this longstanding tradition that has been a mainstay of the city's experience since the mid 1900's.
Jobs & Prosperity
While vacation rentals are nothing new to Palm Springs, they have recently become more accessible to travelers as technology has democratized the process of finding the perfect home away from home.
The evolution of home sharing and vacation rentals has brought new life and vibrancy to our neighborhoods as blighted, unsafe homes have been thoughtfully renovated and brought to code.
In Palm Springs, rentals have also created thousands of jobs and directly helped struggling lower and middle class residents earn a living. From restaurant owners to retailers to service workers and taxi drivers, renters contribute millions to local incomes.
