Oh boy, what a year 2020 has been. Not only have we had a global pandemic, the shutdown in the visitor industry, plus B&Bs and short term rental homes and many condos were mandated to be closed for operation for many months. We are up and running again now, but there are legislative proposals to restrict Short Term Rental Homes and Short Term Rental Condos on the horizon. All the while, Maui's Short Term Rentals continue to be the single biggest source of revenue for the county in real property tax.
MVRA has been there throughout this year. We have worked with the planning department as they revised the ordinances for B&B and STRH. We have spoken against reducing or changing the regional caps, and phasing out short term rentals time and time again. We have kept everyone updated on the latest rules for the visitor industry. We couldn’t have done it without you.
This year’s annual meeting we will be having a discussion about amending the bylaws to include a condo owner on the board. We will be going over our legal update, and giving a legislative overview for the year to come.
Your voice matters, and what’s more, we need to be heard together. We look forward to seeing you, but unfortunately due to COVID we will not be meeting in person. However, this gives us the opportunity to meet over Zoom and see members from all across the country. Meeting is 2pm HST, that is 4pm Pacific; 5pm Mountain; 7pm Eastern, on Wednesday February 3rd.
