Public hearing scheduled on short-term rentals


The Des Moines City Council today will hold a public hearing on proposed changes to the city’s short-term rental regulations. Before a new zoning code went into effect in December, Des Moines didn’t allow short-term rentals of houses, apartments or condos. While the new code allows the rentals, it caps the number of days an owner can rent his or her property at 120 annually, unless the owner lives on-site. Feedback from current short-term rental operators said the new rules were too restrictive and likely would put them out of business. Now, some Des Moines-area residents who live near the short-term rentals say the proposed changes are too lenient. The public hearing is scheduled during the City’s Council’s meeting at 4:30 p.m. at City Hall, 400 Robert D. Ray Drive.
