Did you know Cathedral City is having a Special Election on March 2nd? On the Special Election ballot is Measure B, Cathedral City’s Short-Term Vacation Rental (STVR) Regulation Measure. If approved by Cathedral City voters, Measure B would uphold all provisions of Ordinance 842 adopted by the City in response to resident complaints and demands to improve neighborhood safety by addressing the impacts of STVRs.
There have been nearly 2,000 complaints from residents who have complained about the disruptive – and in some cases illegal – behavior of STVR guests including loud, late night parties, multiple people coming in and out of residential neighborhoods, and increased criminal activity at STVR properties, including an incident with multiple stabbings last year. And just this month, local Drug Enforcement officers shut down a STVR location for being illegally used to grow massive quantities of cannabis.
