    Property Owners Form Group to Oppose Chattanooga’s Proposed Vacation Rental Rules

    Chattanooga property owners have united to oppose more restrictive rules for short-term vacation rentals up for approval at the City Council's meeting. "These are constitutional private property rights issues that they're trampling all over," Brad Wardlaw, a member of the board for the Greater Chattanooga Coalition for Private Property Rights, said. Citing VRMA data, the coalition said vacation rentals resulted in $93 million worth of total direct spending by visitors to Chattanooga in 2022. "This bolsters our entire city economy," Wardlaw said. "We're helping the restaurant industry, we're helping the cleaners, we're helping the service techs. We're helping all kinds of other small business owners because of the dollars we bring in here."
