Possible short-term rental prohibition

August 21, 2019

In the past few years, the City has received ongoing complaints regarding short-term rentals, which are properties that are rented for 30 days or less. There are recurring themes surrounding short-term rental complaints including:
 
  • The 'revolving door' effect of different people in the house next door every week
  • The large number of vehicles parking in the street
  • Large numbers of people engaged in loud, late night parties
  • Excessive trash in the lawns and prior to trash collection

On August 6, the City Council opted to delay consideration of the measure to allow time for more public input. If you would like to address the City Council on the topic of short-term rentals, you may do so during the public comments portion of any Council Meeting or you can email the Council at city-council@uptexas.org. The action to prohibit short-term rentals will be presented at the next Council meeting, which will be held on September 3 at 5 p.m. at City Hall.

Update September 3, 2019

During the Council Meeting several people presented their thoughts on the proposed ordinance.  Some spoke for the measure, others spoke against it.  Following those remarks, the City Council tabled the proposal, asking City staff to further evaluate the topic.
