Dear Friends –
The Business News section has the most updates this newsletter, but important information is in each section. As always, don’t hesitate to let me know about things happening in the community to include in subsequent editions.
One of the hottest topics at Council right now is Short Term Rental’s and BL2017-608 is the latest bill to restrict non-owner occupied STRP’s. The Council Meeting on Tuesday, May 2 was the public hearing for 608 and we were there until about 12:30am hearing passionate opinions from both sides of the issue. We deferred the bill to wait for possible State action that could limit what we can and can’t do and based on that, there may be potential subsequent amendments to 608, so stay tuned. I certainly see both sides, but lean towards protecting the character and integrity of neighborhoods. This whole process has been messy to say the least.
