The issue of regulating short-term rentals will soon be back on the agenda for Plano City Council.

Many seats in the council chambers were filled on Feb. 27 after an incident where gunfire was heard from a short-term rental property on Cannes Drive early on Feb. 26. Eight speakers called for action in regulating short-term rentals in Plano during the meeting’s public comment section, seven of which were Cannes Drive residents.

City staff have been working to develop a process of regulating short-term rentals similar to that of Arlington’s since an initial ordinance looking to regulate short-term rentals—properties available to rent for fewer than 30 days through online platforms—was tabled on Nov. 14.

Council will discuss a direction for city staff during the preliminary open meeting on March 13, with the goal of having an ordinance on the agenda for its April 10 meeting.

“We’re working very diligently to come to a conclusion that everyone is satisfied with,” Mayor John Muns said.

Plano Police Chief Ed Drain also issued an update on the Feb. 26 incident, saying that no one was injured and that two people were arrested in relation to the incident.

Drain also confirmed that the house was listed on short-term rental platforms Airbnb and Vrbo, but both platforms have “temporarily suspended” the residence.
