Vacation Rental Owners and Neighbors of Palm Desert (VRON-PD)

PRESERVING PALM DESERT'S HISTORY OF RESPONSIBLE VACATION RENTALS AND HOME-SHARING

ATTENTION: PD City Council Voted to FURTHER BAN SHORT TERM RENTALS!!!

On December 10, 2020, the Palm Desert council voted  to further ban short term rentals in Palm Desert. The wall is closing on short term rentals and we must stand united to push the wall back. 

If we stand united, we stand a chance!

While we are actively working to raise awareness and garner support from many homeowners, we still have a long battle ahead. We still need a lot more support. Join us! Please make a generous donation today!

VRON PD is not for profit, 100% volunteer based organization.  We need your ongoing support and financial participation to ensure STRs remain a viable accommodation option for families visiting our great city. 

To meet current budgetary needs including legal and public relations expertise, administrative and technology costs, and so much more, please donate today. 

Time is of the essence.  We need your support to save your STR TODAY!

Mission Statement

Vacation Rental Owners & Neighbors of Palm Desert (VRON-PD) is dedicated to preserving Palm Desert's rich history of vacation rentals and home-sharing through education, awareness, and the promotion of responsible vacation rental ownership and management. 

 

Why Was VRON-PD created?

In the ongoing debate around short-term vacation rentals, one critical group was underrepresented in meetings, negotiations, and in the media: the vacation rental homeowners and supportive neighbors themselves.

Formed in 2020, VRON-PD gave a voice to those homeowners and residents.

 

Our Philosophy

VRON-PD guiding principle is that tourism and residents in Palm Desert can co-exist through smart policies and best practices. Through research, open data, community involvement, collaboration, transparency and ethics, effective policies can be developed that create a win-win for neighbors, renters, businesses, property owners, and the community at large.

 

What We Do

    • Educate and communicate on ordinance requirements and best practices
    • Represent VR homeowners in meetings and negotiations with the City
    • Manage media relations as it pertains to VRON-PD mission and objectives
    • Facilitate factual reports and studies around VR data, impact and economics
    • Build strategic partnerships with Coachella Valley tourism organizations in support of responsible VR ownership
    • Provide funding for potential legal representation

 

Who Does VRON-PD Represent?

VRON-PD represents both VR homeowners (whether they self manage or have a property management company), vacation rental property management companies, supportive non-VR homeowners, citizens who live and work in Palm Desert, and visitors to Palm Desert that share a common vision of responsible tourism and compliant vacation rentals and home-sharing.
