The city of Fort Worth, Texas, has launched a webpage offering resources and ways to provide feedback on short-term rentals (STRs). The new webpage includes a registration requirement, operating standards, zoning options, maps, City Council presentations, FAQs, zoning options, and input opportunities. One tool for gathering feedback includes the use of the ThoughtExchange platform, allowing respondents to voice their thoughts or concerns as the City Council seeks to address short-term rentals. In June, Fort Worth staff chose Deckard Technologies to identify short-term rentals currently operating in the city, and a final report is due in the weeks ahead. Moreover, the city has issued a request for proposals regarding a registration platform for short-term rentals, hotels, and other accommodations, and may consider addressing the issue after reviewing the collected data and engaging with neighborhood associations, residents, and property owners.
