During one of our past LUCNG meetings, we all agreed the topic of Short Term Rentals was one that seems to be affecting all the neighborhoods, with varying degrees of concern. We agreed the LUCNG needed to have a more in-depth conversation about what should be done, in order to coordinate efforts and messaging among the NA's.
The goal is to arrive at a few suggestions to take back to our NA's, and try to move those suggestions forward, whether through a joint letter from the NA's or through the NLA. This topic will be further discussed at a future LUCNG meeting.
