The ordinance came under instructions from the city’s subcommittee on economic development, which at a meeting on Aug. 10 heard numerous concerns about public safety and the impact on the neighborhood, officials said.
Since then, the city has collected more than 2,400 survey responses from the public to draft an emergency ordinance, a temporary measure that would apply to residential properties rented for less than 30 days.
A more comprehensive regulation is to be drawn up for the Council by 2022.
