City of Canyon Lake increases fines for short-term rentals from $100 to $1,500

The Canyon Lake City Council has taken previous action in adopting Chapter 5.25 to prohibit short-term vacation rentals in the city due to a variety of issues, including negative impacts to the character of neighborhoods, increased noise, traffic and trash impacts, and the removal of permanent housing from the market.

Recently, the legislature has also taken note of the serious negative effect short-term rentals can have on residential neighborhoods in the state and enacted California Senate Bill 60 (SB 60) to allow cities to increase the maximum fines for code violations involving short-term rentals.

The council on Wednesday approved the First Reading of Ordinance 218, amending Chapter 5.25 of the Canyon Lake Municipal Code regarding short-term rentals and increased fines pursuant to SB 60.

The fine for the first offense increased from $100 to $1,500. The fine for the second offense within one year went up from $200 to $3,000 and the third offense from $500 to $5,000. A fourth offense in the same year will result in a misdemeanor and may not be reduced to an infraction. Each day a violation is committed or permitted to continue constitutes a separate offense.
