Our Platform

MVRA has a vision which maintains the flow of visitor dollars into our local economy and preserves the jobs of STRH staff, while addressing community concerns about STRH proliferation and impacts on neighborhoods.

MVRA acknowledges the need to address illegal proliferation concerns, and feels that community plan caps adequately address this issue, when these limits are set reasonably. This will maintain a balance of supply and demand, relieving pressure which could otherwise result in spawning of unpermitted operations. 

The vacation rental industry is an ally of the County with respect to implementing regulations. Agreed-upon standards of operation are promoted.

Like any regulated industry such as physicians or realtors, unlicensed operators are an issue. Proper enforcement for illegal Short Term Rental is critical.  This will address further illegal proliferation, which is one of the biggest concerns in the industry.
