      “Given Los Angeles’ critically low rental vacancy rate, high rental costs, and a lack of affordable housing, the LFNC supports the Council File, given the following amendments:
      •  The definition of “Primary Residence” (“The sole property on which the Host conducts Home Sharing and in which the Host resides at least 6 months of the year.”)  to be amended to increase the monthly minimum requirement from 6 months to 9 months.
      •  The limit for Home-Sharing in a Primary Residence of 180 days to be amended to remove any day limit of any type.
      •  The limit of Home-Sharing in a non-Primary Residence to be amended to include an outright ban on Home-Sharing of any type in a non-Primary Residence. This would constitute a ban on any Home-Sharing at in a non-Primary Residence.
      •  To include the option for a second dwelling unit on a single-family zoned lot at a person’s Primary Residence to be used for Home-Sharing, and for that be extended to allow Home-Sharing in a vehicle parked on the property, a storage shed, recreation room, trailer, garage, or any temporary structure like a tent; provided, however, that this option is limited to one such structure.”
