Riverfront Alliance Size Matters Land Use and Zoning Summit
City Council’s Community Development Committee, with Cmbr. Latoya Cantrell, Chair, met this past Wednesday to consider more input on illegal short-term rentals spurred by websites like Airbnb and VRBO. They want to hear from you, and must make decisions to insert rules into the CZO.
FMIA agrees illegal short-term rentals:
• convert residential properties into commercial operations
- replace residents - and voters - with transient visitors,
- disrupt neighborhoods and intrude on the lives of actual resident
- skews housing prices, making areas less affordable
- remove eyes and ears from the neighborhoods, which affects security
The pro-short-term rental people have organized, and now want to legalize this practice so that any building in a residential zone (read: your neighborhood) could become a hotel.
