Scottsdale has some concerns about Airbnb rentals and is looking updating the city’s public nuisance ordinance to rein properties where short-term renters and others get too noisy or have parties.
Scottsdale is considering a new ‘Nuisance Parties and Unlawful Gatherings’ ordinance. It would fine property owners for police calls to their properties.
The city has started seeking public feedback on the proposals, will hold a public meeting on the plan on Aug. 7 and potentially vote on a new ordinance on Sept. 24.
The ordinance and potential fines would apply to all property owners but would include short-term rentals such as those listed on Airbnb. Cities and neighbors have grappled with some Airbnb and other short-term rentals and issues that have popped up with the business model.
