The Dallas Neighborhood Coalition

Date: April 11, 2023

The Dallas Neighborhood Coalition is a voluntary, grassroots organization of residents across the city. For three years, we’ve provided testimony and data to document how Short-Term Rentals (STRs) harm, disrupt the quality of life, increase crime and public safety concerns in neighborhoods, and worsen the city’s housing shortage.

We ask Dallas City Council to support the Keep It Simple Solution (KISS) zoning amendment, as approved by the City Plan Commission, that defines Short-Term Rentals as a lodging use in the development code. This would uphold current zoning that prohibits lodging uses in residential zoning while allowing short-term rentals (vacation rentals like Airbnb, VRBO, etc.) to operate in other parts of the city where zoning allows hotels and these types of commercial lodging businesses.

Zoning is the city’s covenant with its full-time residents and the hundreds of thousands of residential property owners in Dallas who have vested property rights and settled expectations of living next door to other neighbors – not mini hotels.

Put the concerns and welfare of citizens who live, work, raise families, educate their children, vote, and pay taxes here above the financial enrichment of STR owners – the majority of whom are absentee investors with multiple properties, and don’t live in Dallas.
