BEND, OR -- People had an opportunity to offer input on proposed new rules for vacation rentals in Bend Monday.  Committees have been working on coming up with the new rules for the last several months and the city council heard from them.


City Councilor Victor Chudowsky thinks the city can strike a balance. "The key is to stop the concentration in certain parts of town, while still honoring people's property rights.  For instance, if you have a permit now for a vacation rental you can keep it, but not to have any more located in such a small area of  town."


"It's going to be very difficult.  We can't make everyone happy. People are concerned about neighborhoods being pulled out from under them and I'm sympathetic to that.  I have vacation rentals in my own neighborhood and I know people are not happy about it."


The city council will vote on the rules at their council meeting, Wednesday night.
