We know the increase of vacation rentals in certain Bend neighborhoods like River West and Old Bend need to be better regulated.

 

The Bend City Council will hold a public hearing on the issue on March 30th.

 

Bend City Councilor Doug Knight has already signaled to the council at their meeting last week that some of the new proposed rules aren't strong enough.

 

"So far as policy issues, the second on the list is compatability, and you are mainly doing it through programmatics," Knight says. "I don't think it goes far enough, and I know there are other councilors who agree."

 

Knight feels there has to be a way to make sure if a neighbor has a problem, the owner of the vacation rental is available to address those concerns.

 

The city council will be voting on these proposed rules at their next meeting, April 1st.
