The Virginia Beach City Council is studying possible regulations for short-term home rentals, like those promoted on Airbnb and other sites.
The Council is concerned about how rentals affect quiet residential neighborhoods – especially with increased traffic, parking and noise. The council also wants to ensure the safety of visitors who rent homes, apartments or rooms.
The City Council has appointed a committee to study the issue and make recommendations by the end of September. The Council has received several briefings on the issue. To watch videos of those briefings or to read the presentations and related documents, visit here.
The committee is scheduled to meet 3 times in September: Sept. 7, 14 and 28. All meetings will be held 6 p.m. The first and third meetings will be at the Virginia Beach Convention Center. The second meeting will be at City Hall in the City Council conference room. For more information, contact Assistant to the City Manager Robert Matthias at 385-4242.
