The Lexington-Fayette Urban County Council in Kentucky voted on June 27 to move forward with regulations on where short-term rentals can operate. The council will likely take a final vote on the regulations, which have been debated since 2019, at its July 11 meeting. Lexington is one of the few cities of its size without comprehensive regulations for short-term rentals. Neighboring Louisville has had regulations on short-term rentals since 2015 and is in the process of updating them. Georgetown passed regulations on short-term rentals earlier this year.
