PV-Election-ArtBy Terrance Thornton | Paradise Valley Independent

This week’s question-and-answer installment asks council candidates how a new law — SB 1350 — may impact the established hotel marketplace and tranquility of Paradise Valley neighborhoods.

Senate Bill 1350, sponsored by Arizona Senate Majority Whip Debbie Lesko (R), goes into effect at the end of calendar year 2016 and restricts local cities and towns from being able to regulate or restrict the use of vacation rentals or short-term rentals within municipal boundaries.

City leaders at the Town of Paradise Valley and city of Scottsdale share common concerns about short-term rental services meant to disrupt the hotel marketplace. Municipal leaders say the only thing disrupted by services such as Airbnb and others is the established quality of life in both communities while tourism officials appear reticent to make any comment on the matter — one way or the other.

This is what candidates for Paradise Valley Town Council say on the matter:
