Four years of debate over short-term rentals (STRs) in Dallas communities finally reached the City Council on April 4, only to result in another delay in a final vote. City Manager T.C. Broadnax said he did not hear clear consensus from city council members and it will take at least until April 19 to schedule another briefing at which more answers to detailed questions could be provided. One issue is the inclusion of multi-family areas in the zoning prohibition for STRs. The zoning plan on the table would forbid STRs in all residential neighborhoods, leaving only a few dozen of the thousands of STRs believed to be operating in Dallas.
