Community members will have a second opportunity to voice their thoughts on short-term rentals in Lewisville.

What’s happening?

City officials will hold a second public input session on potential short-term rental regulations Nov. 27.

The hearing will be open to anyone interested in sharing their thoughts on short-term rental homes in Lewisville, such as those listed on Airbnb, Vrbo or other sites. No action will be taken at the meeting.

In case you missed it

The meeting is a follow-up of the public hearing Lewisville City Council held Oct. 16.

Lewisville does not have short-term rental restrictions. The city has seen an 86% increase in short-term rental properties over the past three years, according to data collected by city staff.

City officials are studying possible regulations for short-term rentals, particularly in residential neighborhoods.

Some of the recommendations presented at council’s Sept. 11 workshop included addressing problem properties immediately, requiring registration and hotel occupancy tax payment, and gathering public input from residents and short-term rental property owners.

Also of note

Those who can’t attend can email comments on short-term rentals to Chris McGinn, director of neighborhood and inspection services, at [email protected].
