Support the Local Economy
Tourism and travel is vital to the economy of our region, providing tax revenues and supporting hundreds of residents who work in the services and retail sectors. Conventions and events depend on welcoming and right-sized accommodations including hotels and short term rentals (STRs) as the core options for those travelers.
Empower Local Residents
Broadly speaking, several commonsense measures and regulations can be implemented to ease tensions between local residents and the traveling public and their hosts. Short term rentals can introduce some legitimate issues. Proper regulations, management, and education might ensure residents can enjoy the place they live just as peacefully as those who are visiting.
