City of Charleston to Host Short Term Rental Public Meeting

The City of Charleston will host a public meeting to present its review of the city’s new short term rental regulations from 5:30 to 7:00 pm on Thursday, February 7th, 2019 at the Charleston Museum, located at 360 Meeting Street.

Representatives from the city’s Planning, Livability and Tourism, and Fire departments will deliver a formal presentation, which will be followed by an opportunity for public comment.

City of Charleston Director of Planning, Preservation, and Sustainability Jacob Lindsey said, “In 2018, after more than a year of public input, the City adopted new rules for short term rentals with three major goals in mind: protecting residential neighborhoods, preserving affordable housing and ensuring enforceability of the law. The purpose of this public meeting is to update our citizens on progress in each of these areas, and to gather additional feedback from residents as we continue to move forward with implementation and enforcement.”
