TUCKER, Ga. (November 9, 2018) – Tucker’s Mayor and City Council are asking for residents to give their thoughts on a potential short-term rental ordinance. The ordinance, which covers the renting out of residential property for a time period of less than 3 months, applies, but is not limited, to transactions through entities like Airbnb and VRBO.
With the goals of providing safe housing options, preserving neighborhood character and protecting rights of homeowners, Council will be looking at the potential to regulate the maximum number of guests, length of stay and other requirements such as charging a hotel/motel tax on all rentals. Before they do so, they want to know what people in Tucker have experienced with short-term rentals. Whether it’s someone who has rented out their own home or someone who has had an experience with a neighbor renting his home, members of the Council are looking for feedback before deciding a way forward on the issue.
There will be a period of public comment at the City Council meeting on November 13 where people can provide input directly to Council. If anyone is unable to attend that meeting but wishes to give feedback, they can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
