A ban on bans started with Big Oil & Gas (HB40) having the heavy weight…..Arlington Voice wrote, “Senate Bill 451, which would have prevented Texas cities from banning short-term rentals and writing ordinances regulating the market. Middleton said. ‘The bill never even made it out of committee, because so many people testified so strongly against it.”
Heads up on local regulations to regulate the short term home rental market in Arlington Gasland Texas….I agree that having spaces that can sleep 30 invite t r o u b l e for quiet neighborhoods…two to a bedroom is not asking for much….we are a City of Entertainment and a Urban Drilling Town…both can disrupt neighborhoods………one can cause cancer though.
One thing I have not seen is the City to hand out nuisance charges to the frackers…looks like they haven’t been good at nuisance charges to short term rental abusers too…our town has NOT been able or WILLING to execute our nuisance ordinance…OR maybe IT IS NOT WELL WRITTEN?
I have blogged on nuisance issues and our sorry, ineffective ordinance…here..take your pick.
