The Planning Department held a 2 ½ hour-long information meeting on Monday, July 18 with speakers from Air B&B and the Travel Technology Association, the trade organization that represents many of the short term-rental online companies such as Air B&B, HomeAway, VRBO, etc. The meeting also included Q&A with an audience of approximately 60 residents whose positions on short-term (less than 30 days) residential rentals varied with several in support and in opposition to the pending legislation under consideration by the County Council. The pending legislation seeks to liberalize the regulations for short-term rentals.
