And that is changing the makeup and feel of some neighborhoods.

 

The Bend City Council is slated to discuss the issue next month.

 

Steve Pierce of Bend has lived here for more than 40 yeras.  He is planning to rent out his home in the Old Mill District for the first time.

 

"The renters that are all around us are really nice and we like them.  Everyone watches out for everyone else's property.  So, so far it's good."

 

Pierce says his neighborhood has not had any problems with vacation rentals, but not every neighbood has been so lucky.

 

Some neighbors have complained of loud parties and don't like that they don't know their neighbors because they keep changing.

 

Currently, there are more than 350 vacation home rentals in the Bend area and the Bend City Council is slated to disucss how to regulate them at its September 17th meeting.
