Short term rentalsWhat follows is the latest from the city regarding Short Term Rentals.

Dear Interested Party,
At the October 18, 2011 meeting of the Codes and Ordinances Committee of the Planning Commission, the Commissioners who served as sponsors of the Short Term Rental Working Group presented the attached recommendations (click here) regarding short term rental of single family residential properties in Austin.
If after reading the attached proposal, you have any questions or comments please submit them. Staff is very interested in additional input from all stakeholders, citizens, property owners, residents, and any other interested party on this draft proposal.
Staff review of these recommendations is underway.  When it is complete, the proposal will be brought before the full Planning Commission for public hearing, discussion and action.  From there, the proposal will be submitted to Council for an additional public hearing and a final decision by Council.
Neither of these public hearings have yet been scheduled.  You will be notified by email when the date of the public hearing has been set.
You are receiving this memo because you have requested to be included on a mailing list on this topic.  If you do not wish to receive future mailings on this topic, please let me know and you will be removed from the mailing list.
