Letter: Airbnb law a solution in search of a problem



Carmel’s incessant desire for an Airbnb law is a solution in search of a problem. After reading an article (on this topic) in Current, I decided to research how prevalent Airbnb listings were in Carmel. I found five. These five listings are said to be hurting property values, cutting into hotel profits and upsetting residents throughout the city.  Sounds like a public nuisance desperate for regulation to me. 

If regulation is necessary, it should be handled at the HOA level. This would solve any disputes at a local level without the unnecessary bureaucratic red tape. On the bright side, the $500 collected from the fees for these five Airbnb’s will get us one step closer to that carousel.
