Chris Gardner, Ojai's only holder of a business license for a short-term rental in a residential zone, has filed a notice of intent to circulate a petition with the city of Ojai. Gardner proposes the addition of a “Local, Licensed and Limited Rentals” ordinance to the city's Municipal Code.
The notice was received by City Clerk Rhonda Basore Monday.
The proposed ordinance will appear on the Nov. 8 ballot if 457 valid signatures, 10 percent of the city's 4,567 voters, are submitted to the city by May 20.
