The Las Vegas Planning Commission on Tuesday night threw its support behind City Councilwoman Lois Tarkanian’s proposed ban on short-term rentals.

Commissioners voted 4-3 to support the proposed ban, which would grandfather in short-term rentals already permitted by the city. The decision followed more than an hour of public comment, with a majority of speakers opposing the ban.

Commissioner Christina Roush — who supported the ban along with Commissioners Donna Toussaint, Vicki Quinn and Brenda Williams — said Las Vegas neighborhoods had become a “test tube” for a short-term rental experiment that has proved overwhelming for the city to regulate.

“We are here to protect neighborhoods,” Roush said.
