    Advocacy Spotlight: Glynn County, Georgia

    Vacation Destinations are facing increasing challenges from government regulations. In Glynn County, Georgia VRMA members worked with the local government to create a positive outcome. Over the past several years, Glynn County officials have discussed the creation of local rules. While some proposals were sound efforts to address careless behavior, some ideas would have long-term negative impacts on the professional managers in the area.

    VRMA Member Kris Maichle worked to organize local managers and area businesses to help the county get through this process with a good outcome. Working with the VRMA advocacy team, the Glynn County managers were able to put together a regulation that focuses on allowing good actors to operate while addressing the bad actors. Rules around noise, parking, trash, and occupancy were created by the county and the vacation rental managers working together in an effort to achieve compliance.

    The Glynn County regulations have been adopted and the focus on compliance was achieved. These rules are now being used as a model example for communities throughout the State by the new coalition, the Georgia Vacation Rental Alliance.
