The El Paso Chamber's board of directors voted to formally oppose possible short-term rental regulations. “After much consideration and collecting input from the business community, the El Paso Chamber has made the decision to oppose these regulations, as these will put short-term rental owners in an adverse position,” according to a chamber news release. Many of the short-term rental owners are chamber members, the chamber release noted. El Paso has just over 1,800 active Airbnb and Vrbo short-term rentals, according to the latest data from AirDNA. City officials held 14 community meetings, which ended March 2, to provide information on possible regulations and get input from the community about regulating the industry.
