I've had several meet and greets, gone door to door and have listened to a lot of different residents. One thing has come through loud and clear- the negative impact of short term rentals on so many of our residents must be addressed. I originally thought that we could address the problems with strict regulations. But after hearing from so many of you and thinking through the proposed restrictions, I don't think that's the case. As your City Council member, I will support the ban on short term rentals and implement real enforcement, which could include a dedicated code enforcement officer, on-line compliance services, direct, easy to access reporting processes, and accessible enforcement 24/7.
This is how I work - I listen, I ask questions, I do research... then I act!
Thank you for sharing your insights with me and helping me get to a result that will benefit our whole community!
