Potential reform of short-term rentals seems nearly inevitable, one elected leader says, as residents and officials around Arizona vented further issues at a second bipartisan meeting at the Arizona capitol on the overnight accommodation option.

Furthermore, Scottsdale Mayor Jim Lane testified in front of the joint ad hoc committee for short-term rentals in December, pointing to a concern of how commercial enterprises renting out single-family homes for tourists could potentially change the entire complexion of neighborhoods.

The joint ad hoc committee comprised of six Arizona representatives and senators hosted the second of three meetings to analyze the impact of short-term rentals on local neighborhoods. The first meeting, held in October, was limited to discussing the issue of “nuisance” created by the temporary rentals.
