Hotel Tax and Vacation Rental Initiatives Headed to Future Ballot

Two proposals are headed to a future election ballot in San Diego.

The citizens’ initiative that would raise hotel taxes to pay for the expansion of the San Diego Convention Center, along with funding for homeless and roads, will be going to voters but it's not sure when.

The city council has agreed to send the initiative to voters but they won't decide until later this month whether it will be a special election next year or the scheduled election in November of 2020.

Mayor Faulconer is pushing for a special election in 2019.

On another issue, the city council says a citizen’s initiative to overturn the new city ordinance limiting the number of short term vacation rentals has qualified to be on a future ballot.
