The Plan Don't Ban initiative was rejected for inclusion on the November ballot due to failure to comply with California elections code, according to a letter sent by Ojai City Clerk Cynthia Burell to proponent Chris Gardner.

The initiative seeks to legalize and regulate 90 short-term rentals within the city of Ojai.

According to Burell, Gardner's petitions failed to include the text of the measure on the first page of each section of the petition, a requirement under the elections code.
