Most of these “short term rental” businesses are owned by out of town companies or people that don’t live in P.G. They fought against the pigs and chickens already, now they fight to turn neighborhoods into motels.
Pacific Grove’s rules, the suit says, “unlawfully violate, deny and impair the fundamental vested rights of the petitioners and others lawfully using their properties for short-term occupancy and rentals.”
The lawsuit also names rental owners Joy Colangelo, Kevin Delaney, William B. Harder, Alka Joshi, Kathryn Kranen and Spencer Tall as plaintiffs. Palo Alto attorney David P. Lanferman filed the complaint on their behalf.
