Dear Senator Kelly Hancock,
Arlington is proposing $1000 Special Use Permit fee plus $50/acre to be able to legally run a short term rental property. Instead of an all out ban which is unconstitutional, their next best step is a defacto ban on short term rentals with an extortionistic price of $1000 and a cumbersome, multi-layered SUP process.
New Orleans has $150 fee
and Waco charges $150 plus $50 for subsequent years……..
Please let us know if you can get some legislation going on a ban on STR bans…just like HB40, a ban on fracking bans…if we have to live with gaswells why can’t we live with short term rentals? The long term rentals are not kept up as nice as STRs due to the feedback visitors can provide on the internet.
Long term renters in our experience are damaging to our rental homes…we could make the same amount of money with 40 days a year as a STR verses the wear and tear associated with 365 days/yr with people who trash rental properties.
Thank You for listening.
