Residents pack Southold Town Hall for short-term rental hearing

06/02/2015 10:18 PM |

More than 30 people spoke at a public hearing on Southold Town’s short-term rental law Tuesday night.

For months the town has been in the process of legislating short-term rentals, which have been causing concern amid a growing number of websites such as Airbnb.com that allow homeowners to lease their houses for as little as one or two nights.

As proposed, Southold town’s law would limit rentals in residentially zoned properties to a seven-night minimum.

No action was taken following the 2 1/2 hour hearing.

Town Supervisor Scott Russell said the Town Board will now weigh the public comments and decide if any changes to the law are necessary. If any significant changes are made, then another hearing would need to be scheduled before a vote is held.

If approved, the law would not go into effect for 60 days.
