Owners of existing short term rentals can apply now for permits
Submitted by the City of Paso Robles
–Starting Sept. 9 short-term rental (STR) permit applications will be accepted only from owners in possession of an existing, valid STR business license whose business license application was submitted to the city on or before July 16, 2019. All business licenses will be eligible for a short-term rental permit. After Oct. 9, 2019 no more short-term rental permit applications will be accepted for 60 days.
Starting on Dec. 9, 2019 short-term rental permit applications can be submitted by anyone, but short-term rental permits and business licenses will only be issued for applications that are consistent with all the ordinance requirements and numeric caps (75 max in R-1, 250 in all other zones). If the city issues more then 75 “grandfathered” short-term rental permits in the R-1 zones or 250 in all other zones the city will develop a waiting list for additional applicants.
