MCA Looking at Short-Term Rental Regulation

Debbie Matz  | Published on 7/19/2017
The Planning and Zoning Committee (P&Z) of the McLean Citizens Association (MCA) is beginning to focus on possible County regulation of short-term rentals (e.g., via AirB&B.) MCA urges McLean area residents to provide their views by responding to an on-line survey now being conducted by the County. 

According to the County's announcement, "the Virginia General Assembly passed Senate Bill 1578, which gives localities the authority to require registration of Short-Term Rentals. As a result, the Board of Supervisors directed the creation of a working group to draft zoning regulations for Short-Term Rentals in the County and to establish a registry of Short-Term Rentals. In proposing Short-Term Rental regulations to the Board, the working group seeks to balance residents' interests to protect the character of their neighborhood with the interests of persons wanting to operate Short-Term Rentals within their residence."

To assist MCA's analysis of the County's anticipated proposal, Debbie Matz and John Neumann are in charge of gathering information on short term rentals for the P&Z committee. This will be a big issue in the fall so it's important to let as many people as possible weigh in. 

The County survey is open only until August 31. Why not take it today, before you head to the beach?
