In Coconino County, Arizona, the Short-Term Rental Ordinance and the Rent-By-Owner Vacation Rental Program have all caused many residents to become concerned about the impact on their property values and the Coconino County Vacation Accommodations Association. This article will discuss the implications of these new laws for the Association and the short-term rental market in the county. It will also examine the impact of Senate Bill 1350 on the Association.
Impact of Senate Bill 1350 on Coconino County Vacation Rental Owners Association
The impact of Senate Bill 1350 on the Coconino County Vacation Rental Owners’ Association is not yet clear, but a county’s zoning ordinance may need to change to comply with the legislation. While SB 1350 prohibits counties from restricting vacation rentals, the county can regulate them to ensure their health and safety. However, zoning regulations are not a panacea for short-term rentals.
Despite the fact that Arizona has deregulated the short-term rentals industry, some leaders of local governments are still lobbying for changes. SB 1350 is one such piece of legislation, which prevents local governments from enacting rules for short-term rentals. The zoning rules in some areas are already geared towards protecting residential properties. In Sedona, for example, the city council banned short-term rentals back in 1995.
Impact of Short-Term Rental Ordinance on Association
On Nov. 19, Coconino County will begin regulating short-term vacation rentals. The Board of Supervisors approved a resolution establishing standards for these properties. These standards include occupancy limits, parking requirements, and enforcement of noise and security. A year-long study was completed to prepare this ordinance. It is unclear how the ordinance will affect Coconino County Vacation Rental Owners Associations, but property owners should stay informed.
The report also cited problems with short-term rentals in the community. The Airbnb rental platform has created a large economy in local communities. Many of the rentals are private home owners, who benefit from the extra income by renting out their spare rooms. However, some of these vacation rentals have become a nuisance, causing noise, and irritated neighbors. Despite these concerns, the report did not address the issues highlighted by legislators.
Impact of RentByOwner vacation rentals on Association
On Nov. 19, the Board of Supervisors will enact a resolution regulating short-term vacation rentals. The resolution establishes standards for these short-term rentals, including occupancy limits, parking requirements, and enforcement of noise and other issues. The resolution comes after the county’s planning and zoning department worked for over a year to draft an ordinance.
While the impact of short-term rentals is limited, local governments still have a role to play. Short-term rentals can affect local property values, traffic, health, and sanitation. The local government can regulate these rentals only to a limited extent, and cannot ban them entirely. The association does, however, monitor short-term rental properties. Currently, there are over 4 million listings on Airbnb.
