A proposed ordinance to regulate short-term rentals in Flagstaff, Ariz., would include an annual licensing fee and other rules for operation. Dozens of people at City Hall in person were joined by more than 50 attendees online on March 27 to learn more details. Under the proposed ordinance, the city would create a formal licensing system for short-term rental properties that includes a fee not to exceed $250. The ordinance also outlines rules and requirements for property owners, including establishing a 24-hour emergency point of contact for the rental property and notifying neighbors that the property is operating as a short-term rental. The ordinance would also prohibit individuals with some felony convictions from obtaining a short-term rental license.
