Residents voted against a proposal to limit short-term rental licenses in Isle of Palms, South Carolina. The referendum was prompted by a petition signed by more than 30% of the city’s registered voters. It called for adoption of an ordinance with a 1,600-license cap rentals for homes taxed as commercial properties. Full-time residents, who can legally rent out their homes for up to 72 days each year, would have no limit on short-term rental licenses. With all votes counted, the referendum was opposed by 54.5%.
