Atlanta to Review Additional Regulation of Short Term Rentals

March 16, 2023

Councilman Antonio Lewis has filed legislation which seeks to further regulate how and where Short Term Rentals (STR) may be operated within Atlanta city limits.

The proposed amendment expands the definition of an STR owner to include owners of multi-family buildings or structures. It would require additional licensing for property owners, and it would also restrict the number of rentals allowed in multi-family buildings, including condominiums.

In addition, if passed, the new regulations would also implement distance requirements between any single-family home, two-family buildings or structures, and accessory structures being used as STR’s.

Stakeholders, including ARA, who are concerned about the new language in the ordinance attended a workshop on Thursday, March 16th to discuss these changes and their potential impact. Another hearing on the changes will be held later this month.
