Letter: Short-term rentals running young families out of town

Editor: I appreciated Mr. Reynolds letter regarding short-term rentals.

I also fail to see why a “high occupancy retreat” home would a) be in snyc with neighborhood homes, and b) not be considered a commercial/hotel enterprise.

All of us need to remember, it’s all about the M-O-N-E-Y. It continues with developers in Rimrock and Cornville - again, it’s all about the money. Who cares about who and what is currently there.

The Legislature did pass a new Senate Bill, but it was pretty much stripped down and will do nothing to prevent short-term rentals in neighborhoods.

I feel very sad for young families trying to find a decent home to rent; pretty soon there won’t be any left - or they will be so expensive no one can afford them.

Come on, city/county leadership, get a backbone and say “no” to Governor Ducey. January’s session will be quite interesting. I hope our all state representatives do their job. Mr. Reynolds is right about one thing - all the locals will be gone.
