Take Action!

The most important thing to be done is to show up, continuously and persistently, to speak your truth.

Rocket science credentials not required.

Here are two ways to demonstrate your “show up and be counted” power.

  1. Write.

  2. Attend

Write a letter to the editor, to the county council, to your social media tribe, to the vacation rental working group. Here are suggestions for how to write an effective letter. If you wish to hand-write a letter, here is a sample “blank form” .

Attend a Planning Commission or County Council meeting and speak during the public input period. Here are the citizen access guidelines.

Sign the Petition!

A change.org petition asking San Juan County Council members to impose a moratorium on the issuance of Vacation Rental Permits pending a thorough review and implementation of new policies and regulations prior to rescinding the moratorium has been created. You can read the petition language and sign the petition here.

Note also that if you wish to support our work, do not donate at “change.org” but instead go to the donations tab at islandstewards.org
