Short-Term Rental Call To Action Tonight

NEW ORLEANS – The Short-Term Rental Committee is composed of people from across New Orleans who advocate for the protection of neighborhoods from the intrusion of illegal short-term rentals, which they say introduce commercial uses into residential areas, displace actual residents and undermine the building blocks of New Orleans.

         They are hosting a short-term rental call to action and sign-up, tonight, Thursday, August 6, 2015, at 5:30 p.m., at  2475 Canal St., between N. Tonti and N. Rocheblave, in the Council on Aging building.

         Organizers say this is a meeting for concerned citizens working to make sure that the City Council addresses illegal short-term rentals in a way that provides meaningful protection to residential neighborhoods, neighborhood organizations and individual neighbors.

         They caution that all residents have a stake in this matter and they need your help.

         At the meeting, there will be an overview presentation of recently proposed legislation and looming City Council action. A summary of current approaches used in other cities that are also being considered for New Orleans is going to be discussed. And there will be an opportunity for participants to get involved and work with the Short-Term Rental Committee in crafting realistic and useful proposals for the City of New Orleans.

         There will also be takeaway materials and information available.
