Housing is a lot to chew on

comment

When is someone going to take a swing at the licensed weekly rentals to pay for their impact on our neighborhoods? An ordinance allowing commercial ventures to operate on every residential block was implemented 15 years ago, has never been modified for any reason, and no one has ever had their rental license revoked.

The county gives out permits to anyone so they can have their personal profit-making parties using county property such as streets. As to housing, I personally live next to six weekly rentals that use my street like a race track, and the one right next door has broken most every rule written in the ordinance.

The county does nothing.

If an owner lives on his/her property and has a room to rent on occasion, that is one thing that the county should keep their noses out of. To buy a residential home and use it only as a commercial weekly rental is an entirely different situation. And folks ask why there is little residential property that can be rented monthly by our full-time working residents.
