The Link Between Affordable Housing and Short-Term Rentals (with the ICMA)

From Airbnb to VRBO to Flipkey, the rise of short-term rentals (STRs) continues to be a contentious issue in government for a variety of reasons. 

One concern near the core of the debate:  The impact STRs have on affordable housing in their communities. 

Join us as we dive into this issue with renowned tourism and livable communities expert Dr. Brumby McLeod. He will: 

  • Review the link between affordable housing and short-term rentals 
  • Trends in housing and tourism 
  • How communities can identify whether STRs are affecting their community. 

In addition, speakers from Granicus’ Host Compliance will share key enforcement and compliance strategies for the challenging market of short-term rentals.
