It’s been nearly three years since Gov. Doug Ducey signed legislation disallowing cities or counties from prohibiting short-term vacation rentals.
And while many have taken advantage of the law financially by renting parts or all of their homes to visitors, the result has also left many scrambling to find housing. From day one, this issue has been a hot topic in Sedona as well as other communities throughout the state. While it’s highly unlikely Senate Bill 1350 will ever be reversed, some county-level elected officials are hoping to give a few rights back to the cities they represent.
Each year the state’s 64 county supervisors meet to address and vote upon issues they’d like to see presented to the state legislature. One of the eight that were recently decided upon deals with short-term vacation rentals.
