Mayoral Q&A: Where do you land on the topic of Paradise Valley short-term rentals?

By Melissa Rosequist | YourValley

Short-term rental units have been deemed among the most disruptive and negative trend in Paradise Valley, the current mayor says.

Despite much work being done by the Town Council as a whole in recent years, the vacation rental business is protected by state law. As more people become familiar with short-term rentals and the opportunities that these vacation properties may present to property and business owners, new trends emerge.

Challenging Jerry Bien-Willner for his mayor’s seat in the upcoming Aug. 2 primary election, Councilmember Julie Pace says she is opposed to party houses, timeshare and home hotels that may impact the residents of Paradise Valley.

In this week’s candidate Q&A, we ask both mayoral candidates what their position is on the growing industry of short-term rentals and fractional ownership of properties.

Read below to garner a better understanding of the two candidates seeking to be Paradise Valley’s mayor.

Julie Pace
• Let’s talk about short-term rentals and fractional ownership of properties in town. Briefly tell us what you think about these growing industries?

I strongly stand for our residents’ interests and protecting quality of life.

I always opposed party houses, timeshares, and home hotels from operating in residences. I have advocated for a multi-faceted approach to stop intrusions into neighborhoods, instead of waiting for a legislative solution to return local control. Our town’s legislative effort two years ago failed despite hard work.
