Knoxville City Council has decided to hold a workshop on the proposed ordinance governing short-term rentals.

The workshop will delay any vote on the ordinance until after the workshop is held. The Metropolitan Planning Commission earlier this month voted to pass the ordinance along to Council without recommendation.

The workshop will be held at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, June 29, in the Large Assembly Room of the City County Building. The workshop will include a presentation by city staff, and time will be set aside for public comment.

On May 9, 2017, the Executive Committee of the WNCA approved the following Resolution and sent it to the Mayor and City Counsel.

"Be it Resolved that the Executive Committee of the Wesley Neighbors Community Association is opposed to allowing Short-Term Rentals (STRs) in Residential Zoning Districts R-1 and R-1E in the City of Knoxville, as proposed in an Ordinance which will be considered in the near future by the Knoxville City Council."

We simply believe that our neighborhoods being zoned a single family household neighborhood should be just that and not a business opportunity that at the end of the day will change the nature of our community and lower the quality of life as well as the value of our properties.
