Board of Supervisors revises short-term rental ordinance

In the Board of Supervisors session Aug. 23, the supervisors unanimously agreed to small revisions in the proposed new ordinance limiting short-term rentals in residential zones. The changes will help clairfy the limits of this new ordinance prohibits rentals of less than 31 days duration in RC, R-1, and R-2 zones, but does not impose the same limits in other zones such as commercial or industrial. It is anticipated that the revised ordinance will be submitted and passed within 30 days. This ordinance addresses a gathering problem in the Township caused by abusive tenants in rentals often refereed to as "party houses."  The ease of Internet search and reservations has expanded the number of these rentals.
