RESOLUTION OPPOSING POTENTIAL LEGISLATION TO RESTRICT LOCALITY’S ABILITY TO MANAGE SHORT TERM RENTALS
WHEREAS, the Cheriton Town Council is committed to protecting the property rights of all county citizens; and
WHEREAS, while short-term rentals are allowed by right in certain zoning districts with Northampton County, the tremendous increase in the number of these short-term rental units currently existing in the County is causing a significant lack of affordable, long-term rental units to be available for use by its citizenry; and

NOW, THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the Cheriton Town Council opposes SB 1391 and would respectfully requests that Senator Lewis cease his sponsorship of same
