In response to community concerns and as directed by San Bernardino County’s Housing Element, the County is preparing a study to evaluate the impacts of short-term rental activity on renter households and the availability of long-term rental housing in Mountain and Desert unincorporated communities. The County will share the  study background, data sources and methodologies, market trends for short-term rentals, preliminary findings, requests for community input and next steps at community meetings in both the Desert and Mountain Regions. If you cannot attend and have questions or need additional information, please e-mail Please be sure to put “STR Study Comments” in the subject line of your email.

The Big Bear short term rental meeting has been rescheduled for September 21 from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the Big Bear Senior Center. See the flyer below for more information.
