Issue Permits for Alternative Lodging on Oahu
I am signing this petition because I am either a visitor to Oahu who prefers staying in alternative lodging, the owner or an employee of a small business on Oahu that benefits from visitors staying at alternative lodging, or I am a resident who is simply in support of the sharing economy and the alternative lodging industry.
In 2015, two Resolutions (15-072 and 15-086) were introduced in the Honolulu City Council, relating to permits for Bed & Breakfasts (B&Bs) and Transient Vacation Rentals (TVUs) on Oahu, also known as alternative lodging. Those resolutions have been held in committee since 2015. I am asking the Honolulu City Council to act on those resolutions and authorize new alternative lodging permits on Oahu, with reasonable regulations and standards.
