Dunwoody created a permit system to allow for house parties to take place. However, qualifying properties must be more than 150 feet away from other residential properties, so it’s unlikely there’s a property in the city that would meet that criteria. The city’s community development director will review permit applications.
City leaders also pointed out that their zoning code already prohibits most Airbnbs from operating in the city, since a home can’t be rented out for less than a month at a time. The council also said they could tweak the policy down the road to punish the homeowners, not just the party hosts.
