Goodyear approves new short-term rental regulations
The Goodyear City Council has approved new measures for short-term rentals.
Those include a license, notifying neighbors and a mandatory response time for emergency and complaint contacts.
The city reacted based on a new law which took effect Saturday. It returns regulation of short-term rentals from state to local control.
“When the Legislature preempted local control over short-term rentals in 2016, we saw a landslide of unintended consequences created by this industry’s incredible popularity and investment potential across the state,” stated Mayor Joe Pizzillo in a press release. “The Legislature’s most recent bill allows cities to more evenly balance the regulatory scale to balance the property rights of short-term rental owners with the quality of life of their neighbors. This ordinance is a step in the right direction, and I’m proud of our city’s leadership on this issue.”
Online registration for a license begins in December. The city’s ordinance will then go into effect Jan. 1, 2023.
