Neighbors fighting short-term rental on their street

Posted at 6:56 PM, May 15, 2018

People living in a neighborhood off Alta and Durango Drive say they've gotten fed up with a short-term rental home on their street.

They say the house has recently become a party house with at least a dozen cars parked outside at one point. In the city of Las Vegas, special use permits are required for short-term rentals, and so far, not very many have been issued.

In this case, the planning committee recommended denying the permit on May 8 after several neighbors spoke at the meeting wearing bright shirts that say "don't hotel my neighborhood."

But the homeowner tells 13 Action News, she's doing everything by the rules, and feels neighbors are ganging up on her.  She says if the final decision doesn't go her way, she will still do longer-term rentals of longer than a month, and says long-term rentals are also an option on the Airbnb app.

Short-term rentals are not allowed in unincorporated Clark County.
