Red Bank tables its short-term rental rules proposal

Red Bank city commissioners are postponing until April votes on two proposed ordinances relating to short-term rentals.

One of the ordinances would have defined the city's commercial, R3 and R4 zones as permitted areas for short-term rentals, and would have prohibited them in other residential zones. The second would have established regulations for the operation of short-term rentals. The city now has no permitted zones or regulations in place for short-term rentals, said City Attorney Arnold Stulce, meaning all short-term rental property owners in the city are in violation of the zoning ordinance.

"I think we need to do more research on this," Commissioner Terry Pope said after making a motion to table the vote, adding that he wanted to see if there was any opposition from city residents before making a decision.
