With great regret, secretary Tim McCormack read a letter of resignation from Tony Nobles. Tony is resigning from the SBCA board due to a heavy travel schedule which will prevent him from being able to attend SBCA meetings on a regular basis.
HBPD Lt Scott Winks recommended that bike owners register their bicycle serial numbers on the HB web site so that if stolen & subsequently found, they can be easily identified. Lt. Winks said the program is very successful.
Nomination & Introduction of New Board Member:
Tim McCormack nominated Joe Barco to fill the vacant spot caused by Tony Nobles resignation from the board. Kevin Paulson seconded the motion. Motion carried unanimously.
Tony Nobles will remain in charge of the Halloween Party.
Guest Speaker: Jennifer Villasenor, HB Planning Department Planning Manager & Nicolle Bourgeois, HB Planning Department Planning Aide spoke about Short Term Rental Requirements. Standards for short term rentals are not yet complete and will be developed over the next few months by the HB Planning Department. Once developed, the standards will need to be approved. These standards will apply to short term vacation rentals that last less than 30 days. A business license will probably be required and a conditional use permit at an approximate cost of $6,511 plus an additional $3,000 coastal commission fee is also contemplated. At the present, it is estimated that there are approximately 100 Air B&Bs in Sunset Beach.
Rick Massi, HB Department of Planning & Building Code Enforcement Supervisor, also spoke. He addressed the sober living units on 24th and 25th streets. They are contrary to the HB guidelines however they are licensed by the state which supercedes local ordinances. So, there is nothing code enforcement can do about them other than reacting to normal issues.
Sunset Beach LCP Update:
Tim McCormack reported that the LCP reviewed three plans in the past month. These included one addition, one single family new build and one new duplex.
With no other business coming before the board, the meeting was adjourned at 8:55 pm.
