The Cannon Beach City Council appointed seven members and two alternates to its newly-created short-term rental task force at its Tuesday meeting.
Through an ordinance, the city regulates short-term rentals in Cannon Beach.
The purpose of the task force is to investigate “short-term rental permitting, violations and impacts of the short-term rental program in Cannon Beach,” as stated in a staff report.
The city initially proposed an 11-member task force but ultimately voted to limit the number to seven with two alternates.
“It was Council’s opinion that after reviewing the 18 applications, if 11 were selected, the membership would be heavily weighted towards short-tern rental management and Council wanted the task force to be more evenly represented. They agreed to a seven-member, two-altemate membership,” a staff report states.
The council selected “Linda Beck-Sweeny, Lisa Fraser, Lisa Kerr, Bob Neroni, Jim Paino, Dwight Thompson & Claudia Toutain-Dorbec as members and Brian Olson & Lynn Sinclair as alternates,” said Jeff Adams, city community development director in an email Wednesday morning.
