More interesting Info on Short Term Rentals

A few weeks ago, the Garden District Association distributed its position on Short Term Rentals to all of you and promised to keep you in the loop on information surrounding this issue. Here are two articles that shed more light on how STRs are not healthy for our neighborhood and many neighborhoods across the country, and what other municipalities are doing about them. We thought you might want to check them out.

The first from the Washington Post Another from the Wall Street Journal

Earlier this week, Jay Brinkman, a local economist shared his views with hundreds of attendees at an STR event. While we do not have copy of that presentation, his recent submission to the City Planning Commission outlines his major points. It is worth reading, as well.

Lastly, if you have not yet received a sign for your yard to help us spread the work to Keep Neighbors in Neighborhoods; No STRs, please pick one up from 1332 Washington, David Spielman Gallery or let us know and we can get one to you for display. Many thanks for your help in keeping our neighborhood authentic!
