Atlanta Planning Commissioner Jahnee Prince told a city council committee last week that the city needs to amend its ordinance due to a recent court decision. She said the city anticipates the council will get the amended ordinance draft next month.
After the council approved the extension, the city council’s office stated the extension will give the short-term rental community more time to be compliant with the ordinance.
“I’ve lost count as to how many times we’ve extended this,” said City Councilman Dustin Hillis at last week’s committee meeting. “This is the last extension. How many times are we going to do this?”
Short-term rental owners can apply for a permit or learn more about the process on the Department of City Planning’s website.
