Denver City Council Takes Up Airbnb, VRBO Regulations

Critics of short-term rentals like Airbnb and VRBO say they’re disrupting neighborhoods in Denver.

A Denver City Council committee on Wednesday began weighing rules for those rentals. George Mayl of Denver has had problems with people renting a house next door.

“They want to party at two or three in the morning when you have to work that next day. It is disruptive," he said.

But Brittany Cameron of Denver says she rents a room in her home to help pay bills.

“Denver is becoming a really expensive place to live, so just being able to remain in your home and share that is something that I support,” Cameron said.

Over the next few months, the council will consider a number of rental rules. They include whether only primary residences should be allowed for short-term rentals.
