    Global Short-Term Rental Company Urges Greenville, SC, to Reconsider Development Code

    The Greenville City Council, SC, has approved a new development code, which will continue to include rules on short-term rentals (STRs) when it becomes effective July 15. Airbnb, meanwhile, is pushing cities to treat short-term rentals policy as a stand-alone set of rules. The company sent a press release to news outlets in the Greenville area calling on city council to separate STR regulations from the development code. “Hosts in Greenville rely on the supplemental income from home sharing to make ends meet and offset the increased cost of living,” said Joey Planz, Airbnb public policy associate. “Airbnb and our hosts want to partner with the city of Greenville to create balanced rules that address issues raised by the community while protecting the economic benefits of home sharing."
