Neighbors are hoping a proposed Las Vegas city ordinance will finally give them relief from a notorious party house on the block.

Jewel Dixon first talked to 13 Action News in 2014 about a house near Valley View Boulevard and Alta Drive that was being used for short-term rentals.

"We never know weekend to weekend, or even during the week, what's going to come in there," Dixon said in 2014.

Three years later, the problems of loud music, parking along city streets, and suspicious people walking through the neighborhood haven't been fixed.

"I've been to so many city council meetings where they've discussed this and just let it slide," Dixon said. 

The Las Vegas City cCuncil is now set to discuss new regulations on short-term rentals again. 

Valerie Jenkins, who is visiting Las Vegas from North Carolina, hopes the ordinance will get rid of the "party house" on the block once and for all. Her father lives alone right across the street. 

"With him being by himself, I would hate to see someone who got a little too intoxicated and weren't thinking straight to stray up to somebody else's yard because it's so close," Jenkins said. 

The city of Las Vegas has responded to the home before, even issuing fines to the business license owner. 

Attempts to reach the business license owner were unsuccessful.
