More opportunities to get involved in this topic include:

Short Term Rentals (STRs) are rentals of housing units for 30 days or less.  These are often offered through web hosting platforms such as Airbnb, VRBO, or Homeaway. STRs can be either a room or rooms in a dwelling unit or a whole unit rental that is rented to visitors for a specified period of time.  

To learn more about the Town’s engagement efforts to help inform new local regulations, visit townofchapelhill.org/town-hall/departments-services/short-term-rentals.
