Not a right There have been quite a few unfavorable letters written to the local papers regarding the Plan- ning Commission denial of a vacadon rental at the March meet- ing. I was unable to attend that meeting because of the weather. After reading the staff report and viewing a tape of the meeting I fully support the majority deci- sion. Unlike the commercial zone, the residential zones of Avalon do not include transient (less than 30 days) rental as a principal use. Vacation rentals are allowed in residential zones only with a Con- ditional Use Permit (C.U.P.). If there are objections to granting the C.U.P they are usually because of a negative impact on the neighborhood, or because of a negative impact on year around housing. For several years applicants for a transient rental C.U.P. have been required to provide a statement declaring whether the unit(s) in question have been rented full- time in the past 12 months. For the triplex in question, tenants had been evicted in two of the units.
