Public invited to legislative meeting examining short term rental impacts

Ad hoc committee is formed to better understand issue

Posted

An ad hoc committee has been created to better inform legislators on the issues related to short term rental properties and their impacts on local communities.

At the League of Arizona Cities and Towns Annual Conference in August, a conversation ensued between mayors, councilmembers and staff on the issues and impacts of the burgeoning short term rentals. Out of that discussion arose a commitment to establish the committee, according to League of Arizona Cities and Towns Legislative Director, Nick Ponder.

The first of three meetings to discuss the topic will be 5 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 30, in Senate Hearing Room 1, and will cover issues related to nuisance.

The public is invited to attend.

The second meeting does not have a designated date at this time, but the topic will be clustering/aggregation of short term rentals in certain communities. A third meeting will be to discuss recommendations or possible solutions.

According to an agenda, Mr. Ponder will facilitate an introduction of the issues of nuisance from the League’s perspective, which will lead into presentations from two mayors.

Any photos, videos, evidence, news articles, or other information the public can provide to Mr. Ponder in advance of next Wednesday’s meeting would be greatly appreciated, he said. Email information to: nponder@azleague.org.

Residents are asked to direct their feedback to their state representative.

Senate Hearing Room 1 is at 1700 W. Washington Street in Phoenix.
