California neighborhood bans short term rentals

Sharing is Caring!

A neighborhood in Long Beach, California has become the first and possibly not last to ban unsupervised Airbnb rentals over concerns about drug-filled parties plaguing homes.

In April, College Estates resident Andy Oliver filed a petition to the city’s Community Development Department following months of out-of-state tourists renting out unhosted houses, taking advantage of the state’s lax drug laws and blaring loud music late into the night. The final straw came after a shooting victim ended up outside Oliver’s house.

“People have to live with this knowing that your house, your safe place, has now been violated by violent crime,” Oliver told CBS News.
