Despite being told that they’d be sorry if they did it, the Newport City Council Monday moved ahead with allowing Vacation Rental Dwellings (VRDs) in all residential zones in the city. But councilors said VRDs will be monitored very closely for compliance with strict rules on noise, trash, having enough parking, occupancy limits and getting along with their neighbors.
VRDs offer a “home away from home” experience for visitors to the coast who might prefer it to a standard hotel or motel experience. They also provide additional room tax revenues for the city that can be used for tourism promotion and to provide funds for street maintenance and other services used by tourists.
