Measure T bans short-term vacation rentals in most of South Lake Tahoe. That’s too extreme.
Short-term rentals bring in more than $100 million for our local economy every year. If this ban passes, your job is at risk.
Banning short-term vacation rentals means less tourists will visit South Lake Tahoe. Fewer visitors means fewer diners in restaurants. Fewer customers will lead to fewer shifts for you to work and less tips to take home at the end of the evening.
There’s no reason to make the off-season year-round.
Our city passed a new law last year that limits the number of short-term vacation rentals we have in the city and fines owners and visitors for violations such as noise, parking, and trash.
The law is already working.
Instead of a ban that would cripple our tourism economy and eliminate funding for enforcement, we need to let the short-term vacation rental laws we already have work.
