Today, supporters of home sharing presented over 4,000 petitions signed by San Franciscans who believe residents should be free to share the home in which they live.
Over the past few weeks, hundreds of San Franciscans have shared their stories at City Hall urging legislators to pass fair, progressive rules for home sharing.
At today’s Land Use Committee Hearing, supporters of home sharing turned out again. During the hearing, eleven home sharers presented petitions signed by residents of their respective districts urging the Committee to move forward with legislation that makes it fair to share.
At the hearing, the Land Use Committee recommended that the San Francisco Board of Supervisors adopt home sharing legislation. This is an important step forward for everyone who supports home sharing but there is still work to be done to strengthen this legislation and we are eager to work with everyone as we move ahead.
