The planning board voted unanimously on Tuesday to forward a proposed ordinance regulating short-term rentals to the city council for adoption.
The suggested addition to the zoning ordinance will set new rules for people who rent out space in their homes through Airbnb or similar on-line home-sharing sites.
The regulations were drafted in response to complaints by neighbors who live on Old North Main Street demanding better oversight of Airbnb-type rentals after a summer of problems with a “party house” on the normally sedate street.
