Ouch!

Shooting Ourselves
in the Foot … It Hurts!

The Lincoln City Oregon Vacation Home Association discusses how current vacation rental regulations hurt local families and are contrary to the city's Tourism Development goals, in a June 13th Newspaper piece.

      "Communities around the nation are finding that short term rental activity is an important part of successfully developing tourism and a strong, year-round local economy.

Lincoln City, Oregon VRDs spend about $500,000 each year promoting our city to potential tourists at no cost to the taxpayers, and an estimated $8 million in rental revenues is generated.

Studies about short term rentals show that much of this money remains in the community, supporting families, jobs and area businesses."
