The Short Term Rental (STR) study group met on March 24th.  This was the first meeting of the newly revised study group.  The agenda focused on:
  • getting the group grounded on what the purpose of the team was  
  • providing some historical context on what was accomplished since the inception of this initiative back in Q3-2019
  • sharing some thoughts around how this ordinance could potentially be handled within the current framework of City Parish systems  (Permitting system,  FutureBR)
  • STR data for EBR parish
  • What peer municipalities ordinances could be reviewed to help with the development of a EBR parish ordinance.
  • Agreeing to a monthly meeting schedule

Discussion also centered around the numerous challenges faced by the various stakeholders.

  • The Planning Dept

  • Historic Districts representative
  • Realtor Board
  • Baton Rouge Lodging
