Save Humboldt County from Vacation Rentals

Guest post:

A hearing is scheduled at the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors’s Chambers on Tuesday, February 9 at 1:30 PM. The vacation rental profiteers want to legalize vacation rentals throughout the unincorporated areas of Humboldt County.  They have filed a request with the county to reclassify zoning throughout the unincorporated areas of Humboldt County to allow these roadside motels in our residential areas.

If you (long time community members) don’t want to live next to strangers who invade our neighborhoods and disrupt our quiet country living with loud parties, trash, traffic, dogs pooping on our lawns, cars parking on our properties, and trespassing by both two-legged and four-legged creatures on our private properties, your attendance and your voice is greatly needed at this hearing.

Cities and counties throughout the state and country are banning these roadside motels (aka vacation rentals) because of their disruption of the way of life of their communities.

The quick cash from out-of-towners is fueling the greed of the white-collar profiteers in our county who plan to take over our neighborhoods. (I’ve lived next to one of these roadside motels for a couple years now and I can tell you that I might as well be living next to a Motel 6 for snobs.) These out-of-towners with money don’t give a hoot about the neighbors. They are not considerate; as a matter fact they are the exact opposite of considerate.

Help save and preserve the quality of life here in Humboldt County. Help stop these vacation rentals from taking over. It’s time to take a stand. Your voice is needed on February 9th.
