                   PLANNING - Discussion regarding vacation rentals - Continued.

                   Scott Valley resident Delores Tozier stated that she is not opposed to vacation
                   rentals, however has concerns regarding placement in prime agricultural or
                   single family residential areas.

                   Mt. Shasta residents Dorris Moss and Percetta Speight-Marrs stated that they
                   are not opposed to vacation rentals, but shared concerns regarding the
                   Planning Department’s recommendations and the placement of vacation rentals
                   in single family residential areas. Additionally, Ms. Speight-Marrs provided a
                   packet of information for consideration by the Board of Supervisors.

                   McCloud vacation rental owner Mirella Wilson and vacation rental owner Jo
                   Gerlinger shared support of vacation rentals, as it increases tourism and
                   supports the local economy.

                   Vacation rental owner Bruce Gotshall shared support of vacation rentals.
                   Further, Mr. Gotshall suggested that concerns be made at the local level with
                   the cities.

                   Mt. Shasta resident Elizabeth Booth shared support of the Planning
                   Department’s recommendations.

                   County Administrator Howard Moody requested that a change be made to the
                   first option to read: set aside specific zoning districts, or neighborhoods in the
                   form of zoning overlays, where vacation rentals would be disallowed.

                   Supervisor Hoy shared concerns regarding the lack of rental homes, as a
                   vacation rental generates more revenue for the owner. Additionally, Supervisor
                   Hoy shared concerns regarding lack of housing available for families and the
                   impacts that this has on communities and schools.

                   Supervisors Armstrong and Smith shared support of vacation rentals.
                   Additionally, Supervisor Armstrong shared concerns regarding a county wide
                   ordinance and suggested that population density, neighborhood involvement
                   and a task force with vacation rental owners be considered.

                   Supervisor Erickson shared concerns regarding vacation rentals in residential
                   areas and stated that there is a need to address the placement of vacation
                   rentals.

                   Supervisor Overman advised that he is not in favor of a county wide ordinance,
                   as it may impact private property rights.

                   Discussion followed regarding issues discussed. Further discussion followed
                   regarding vacation rentals that are not in compliance with a permit, overlays and
                   the zoning process.

                   Supervisor Erickson requested the number of vacation rentals in each district
                   and those that are pending. Further, Supervisor Erickson advised that she
                   would be meeting with both cities in her district for further input.

                   Assistant Planning Director Wayne Virag reported on the number of vacation
                   rentals and pending rentals in each district.

                   Discussion followed regarding the pending vacation rental applications, and the
                   possibility of limiting the placement of vacation rentals, and the impacts this
                   may have on the pending applications. County Counsel Frank DeMarco advised
                   that the pending applications do not have a vested right, unless the applicants
                   have paid applicable fees or have an approved permit.
