Short-term rentals, internet access and the planned homeless shelter top the agenda for Monday’s meeting of the Huntington Beach City Council.

The council will be asked to approve a sale agreement with the Huntington Beach City School District for the acquisition of three portable buildings for use in the city’s planned homeless Navigation Center.

A November start is planned for the center, to be located at two adjacent parcels at 17631 Cameron Lane and 17642 Beach Boulevard (north of Talbert Avenue), to serve 174 unsheltered adults.

Also on Monday night, the council will consider directing staff to prepare an ordinance regulating short-term rentals, generally described to mean rentals of of residential properties for less than 30 days.

Additionally, Councilmember Barbara Delgleize is asking the council to direct the city manager to develop a school internet access pilot program for economically disadvantaged families in Huntington Beach. Area school districts are conducting all or part of their instruction remotely through the internet, but there are many homes that do not have internet access.

The meeting will be conducted electronically, and the council chambers will not be open for in-person attendance to provide public comments.

A closed session will be held after 5 p.m. and the regular session is at 6 p.m.
