City by city throughout the nation, residents are standing up against short-term rentals. While the trend isn’t necessarily new, the increase in popularity has led to some residents fighting to keep travelers out of their communities. Ordinances and regulations over the past year have been introduced in several vacation towns where travelers flood the area, even in residential areas.
- Anaheim residents who host short-term rentals will have 18 months to stop operating in the city.
- The city of Anaheim released an emergency mortatorium last year on handing out permits following a massive jump that saw permits double in 2015.
- Major complaints from local residents include lack of parking, late-night noise and litter.
