Airbnb / Short Term Rental Regulation Summary

The July 2018 ordinance, which never went into effect, would have legalized short term rentals of primary residences up to 6 months per year, while banning them outright in non-owner-occupied homes when the host isn’t present. The latter provision brought the ire of Airbnb and Homeaway, which funded the push for a referendum to repeal the new laws.
