Richard Gaines: Change process

I have owned my home in the Tree Haus neighborhood in Steamboat Springs since 1989. Over the years, I have offered my home to vacationers through various management companies in Steamboat.

I am concerned about changes to the Vacation Home Rentals code that may be more restrictive without clear evidence (i.e., documented complaints) showing that a problem exists. Without a legitimate complaints process, few of the alleged impacts caused by VHRs have been accurately documented. The city should reform the way it handles complaints before arbitrarily reforming restrictive use criteria.
