Good news! Honolulu City Council passed Res. 17-52 CD1, which will increase the enforcement of illegal vacation rentals and protect our affordable housing.
But our work continues. Res. 17-52 CD1 will now move forward to the Planning Commission. We must make sure that enforcement of illegal vacation rentals is prioritized first before opening up permits for more vacation rentals. Thanks to Council Chair Ron Menor and Councilmember Joey Manahan for authoring the resolution.
Thank you to everyone who testified in support of Res. 17-52 CD1. Stay tuned for updates on this important issue.
