Short-Term Rental Regulations Up for Discussion at Today's City Planning Commission Meeting

The City Planning Commission staff's recommended regulations for short-term rentals—which would make services like Airbnb legal, but rentals would need proper permitting and to pay taxes—will be up for debate at today's CPC meeting.

The meeting is at 1:30 p.m. today and streams live here.

The regulations would make it extremely easy for someone renting out part of their home to do so legally, but those designated "principal short-term rentals" would be "required to obtain special permission by a majority vote of the City Council." One concern with the proposed regulations is that under them, sites like Airbnb will not have to disclose user data or enforce the city's regulations, which might make it easy for people to flout the rules.
