Despite 2020 having been a challenging year on many levels, we still find much to be grateful for. First, a deep THANK YOU to all ye faithful STRACC supporters. Without your energy and your voices, the year could have ended on a truly miserable note had the BoCC voted to pass STR regulations. So we also want to thank the Commissioners for hearing our input, pausing the process and creating an STR Task Force with members from both sides to find a compromise. We are grateful that STRACC will have a seat at the table!
So we welcome 2021 with hope and look forward to brighter days ahead. STRACC is currently forming a list of pro-STR candidates to nominate to the Task Force, which will be comprised of 3 pro-STR members, 3 people from the other side, and one member from the Planning Commission. The Task Force will have the first 3 months of the new year to make progress toward a balanced solution and make an advisory recommendation to the BoCC.
Mark your calendars for our next STRACC members-only meeting on Thursday, January 7th at 8pm and please officially join STRACC if you haven't already. We'll discuss the makeup of the Task Force, our strategy looking ahead, and go over the results from the STRACC Survey. Many of you (180so far) have taken the survey, but it's imperative that everyone among our 500+ supporters on our mailing list spend 3 minutes to fill it out as soon as possible. Your input will help us understand what is most important to you regarding STR regulations, so we can better prepare for the upcoming Task Force negotiations.
