The Dallas City Plan Commission proposed an ordinance earlier this year that would keep short-term rentals (STRs) out of areas zoned for single family residence. But several city staffers said on June 7 that the ordinance would be difficult and costly to enforce and recommended against it. Staff said that instead of using the zoning process to restrict where STRs can operate, regulation and enforcement should be centered in a registration-based ordinance. City Manager T.C. Broadnax said the STR ordinance was tentatively scheduled to be before the City Council on June 14.
