We Need Homes not Vacation Rentals

The city council has finally decided to take some action to limit the number of short-term vacation rentals. My children and many of my friend’s children are grown up now, and most have been forced to leave the community they grew up in. 

The people that don’t live here think they are part of the community because they own a short-term vacation rental. They are a big driver in the rentals being scarce and overpriced — 250 short-term vacation rentals = 250 families that can’t find a place to live. Our state is having a housing crisis and the council needs to take more action to protect our residents and stop catering to people preying on our community in a time of crisis.
