Introduction to Short-Term Rental Regulation

A planner's guide to regulating the STR industry

With the rapid expansion of the short-term rental industry - now with millions of listings in over 34,000 cities worldwide - many local governments have found their regulatory and enforcement systems unable to respond effectively. In this course, planner Jeffrey Goodman will teach you about this fast-moving industry, how to frame a new ordinance based on community goals, how to balance competing interests in implementing regulation, and the best practices in enforcement from cities around the country.

AICP planners will also be eligible for CM credits through this course.
