What kind of Gestapo state will JC implement to enforce this ordinance?

Did the councilman proposing this get a promise of major re-election $$$ from a hotel lobbyist?


The same Gestapo state that implemented no chain store rules (except for trendy donut shop chains) in downtown that were eventually rescinded. I'm not sure how the city could enforce this in a private home. Would it stand a legal challenge?

Details
In 2015 Jersey City legalized short-term rentals and began collecting hotel taxes. Last year alone, the city collected $1.9 Million in tax revenue from short term rentals.

At the May 8th City Council Meeting, a new ordinance will be voted on that would shut down a large portion of Airbnb’s in Jersey City. Below are some highlights from the proposed ordinance:

-Tenants may not operate short term rentals and apply for short term rental permits, even if you have permission to sublet your apartment on Airbnb
-Full apartment rentals in buildings larger than 3 units will be illegal
-Property owners who live on site in 3 family homes are limited to one Airbnb unit

The May 8th City Council meeting will have a public input session before the vote is taken. Join us to voice your support of short-term rental rights for owners and tenants.

Good Luck!!

Doesn't seem like the NA's are pushing for this - more like the unions (which makes more sense given the sudden and swift change by JC):

it's more like hotel industry/developers. developers always manage to get union members to attend city meetings when they want an abatement, etc.

I think people should be able to do whatever they want with their property. However I hate living next door to one. Different people coming and going, the noise they make, and the trash they leave behind. I would never do it to my neighbors. I can hardly imagine that I am the only one that feels this way.... For the Air B and Bers on here, don't worry greed will surely prevail. If you remove Air B and B, property prices will take a hit for sure and the government that will never have enough money will lose millions.

I'd want to know what the effect of the 2016 ordinance was before saying this is or is not beneficial. How many listings are by people who live in the apartment and just rent out a room, and how many are units used as hotels? And of the listings, how many exceed the 28 day limit in the ordinance and by how much?

By Ron Zeitlinger | The Jersey Journal

An ordinance that would effectively gut the booming short-term property rental industry in Jersey City was introduced at the City Council meeting Wednesday night.
