This legislation would amend the Planning Code and create a new Residential Use Characteristic — Intermediate Length Occupancy (“ILO”) that is applicable only to Dwelling Units. This original ordinance placed an annual cap on corporate housing units to 500 in San Francisco proper.
The sponsor introduced a substitute ordinance on January 14, 2020. Changes included:
Intermediate Length Occupancy: A Residential Use characteristic that applies to a Dwelling Unit offered for occupancy by a natural person for an initial stay, whether through lease, subscription, license, or otherwise, for a duration of greater than 30 consecutive days but less than one year. This use characteristic is subject to the requirements of Section 202.10.
Ground Floor Public Affairs gathered member company input and concerns on the substitute ordinance, contacted the multiple lobbyists involved to find common ground on these issues and is pursuing what these ordinances mean for existing leases so as to advise member companies appropriately. CHPA has been providing information to the Budget & Legislative Office, who has been charged with preparing an industry to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors.
