Property owners to discuss short-term rentals at Tuesday meeting

Updated:
NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

Some New Orleans property owners will meet Tuesday in support of short-term rentals.

The Alliance for Neighborhood Prosperity says it supports responsible short-term rentals and claims the answer to the controversy is to legalize and regulate them - not ban them.

Currently, rentals for a period of fewer than 30 days are illegal in most city neighborhoods. Critics claim the rentals affect their quality of life and drive up rent costs.

"If you're standing at my house at the corner of Pauger and Dauphine, there's a total of 14 illegals, two legals," said Marigny resident Matt Easley. "Look up and down the street. There's no people walking, there's no people stoop-sitting, because so many of the apartments now are used for illegal B&Bs. There's no people anymore."

Tuesday's meeting is from 6- 8 p.m. at the West Bank Regional Library in Harvey.
