Short term rentals

This email is actually intended for the planning commission however their
emails are not available online. The Mercury News reported on changes to
short term rental units code changes. I am a home owner in Menlo Park and
rent out a room in my home on Airbnb to help me make ends meet. Without
this added income the new roof at $30,000 would be unaffordable.
The people coming to stay in the room have been prospective grad students
interviewing at Stanford, parents and grandparents coming to visit their
children living in nearby small apartments and scholars attending a
conference. I have always been at home during these stays so the egregious
behavior we read about in the papers does not occur.
Please do not take away this important source of income for those of us who
need it.
