Short Term Rentals Addressed 


Part 2

From the Mayor:

Short Term Rentals (STR) don’t have to be a problem. This is why your City Council passed Ordinance No. 2022-30 repealing
Section 150.014 and adding a section stating an annual rental license may be revoked if there are 2 or more citations
issued for parking, noise, or nuisance in a rolling 12 month period. However, the complaints must be documented. That is
why you need to report problems to the Police. While it is happening! The police will take your complaint seriously and
start an investigation into the issue. Two years ago Airbnb announced a global ban on all parties and events at Airbnb listings, including a cap on occupancy at 16. They don’t want trouble and will help – IF you report it (after you call the PD). Here are a couple of ways to contact
Airbnb: https://www.airbnb.com/neighbors or https://www.airbnb.com/neighbors/request-call
VRBO also has a page for complaintshttps://www.vrbo.com/en-sg/help/articles/How-do-I-file-a-property-complaint
You absolutely have the right to complain. This is the process; if there is a problem, like a noisy party, call PD, report it to the owner if you know them and to
Airbnb, VRBO or the leasing agent. This issue is on Council’s radar and will be monitored. Remember, it is up to you to make the call, then we will do our part.


Part 1

From the Mayor: 

The use of homes being used as Short Term Rentals (STR) is on the increase. Two
common names are Air B&B and VRBO. We have a couple in Meadows Place. Now,
this is not necessarily a bad thing, if, and this is a big if, IF the owners and their tenants
behave themselves. Council was concerned about parking and noise complaints and
wanted to make sure we had the ability to deal with it should we receive these types
of complaints. We do now.

Our existing Rental Registration ordinance was replaced with new, more specific STR language. In a nutshell, it clearly states
that it is unlawful to rent or provide a Short Term Rental in an unlicensed single family dwelling in Meadows Place. It also
states the annual rental license may be revoked if there are two or more citations issued for parking, noise, or nuisance in a
rolling 12 month period. That means if we revoke their license, they may NOT rent the property. Period. If revoked, it will be
up to Council to determine whether or not to issue a new license.

Our Police Chief, Code Enforcement and legal team were active in the discussions as were Council who had been working on this
issue for months. I am proud of how Meadows Place staff and elected officials approached this issue and feel we now have the
ability to regulate STR’s
