The STR study group met on May 27th. Agenda topics included a status update of La State legislation HB 360. Of note, the bill proposes registration of STRs with the State Fire Marshall’s office and prohibits booking on an online platform unless dwelling is registered with the Fire Marshall. The team also reviewed the STR regulations for a number of Gulf Coast municipalities (including Auburn & Tuscaloosa AL, Chattanooga & Nashville, TN) and compared key elements. The team will prioritize what elements we should include in the BR ordinance. The next meeting is June 29th.    Need input from our members on any experiences with STR in your respective neighborhoods.   Use form on this page to input feedback.
