The Public Safety Committee of the Louisville Metro Council will continue its discussion and review of a proposed ordinance dealing with short term rentals on Wednesday, August 5th.
At 2:30pm, the Committee will hold a special meeting and hear from Mr. Bill Herbert, the Zoning Administrator of the City of Nashville. He will discuss Nashville’s experience implementing their short term rentals legislation.
Then at 3:30pm, the Committee will hold a special public hearing to listen to citizens and interested parties who have a concern or support the proposed ordinance.
“As we move forward, I want to make sure the committee can learn from neighboring cities, like Nashville’s experiences, with short term rentals,” says Councilman David Yates (D-25) who chairs the Committee. “We also want to hear from our citizens, whether they be a host, guest, investor, or neighbor of these types of rentals. We want to hear how they believe they will be affected and actively listen to their concerns.”
The following guidelines will be followed for the public hearing:
The Short Term Rental ordinance is sponsored by Council members James Peden (R-23), Tom Owen (D-8), Bill Hollander (D-9) and David James (D-6).
The Public Safety Committee will meet at 2:30pm in Council Chambers, 601 West Jefferson Street.
