airbnb: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly
What’s a City to Do?

 A Guide for City Planners and Concerned Neighbors

This 23 page e-book provides a practical guide for Cities attempting to appropriately regulate airbnb and for neighbors who are concerned about the impact that airbnb rentals are having on their building or neighborhood.

I worked with the City of Portland, Oregon for two years to develop a new short-term rental ordiance to accomodate airbnb Hosts. By the end of the process I had assembled a great deal of information and realized that cities around the world were dealing with the same situation as Portland – how to appropriately regulate airbnb rentals. So I created this BLOG – The airbnb Analyst – and have been updating it ever since.
