The City of Overland Park recently fielded a survey to get community feedback on how to regulate short-term rentals within city limits.
What are they? Short-term rentals are homes that are offered for rent for as little as one night to several months.
- Typically, these types of places are available on websites like Airbnb, VRBO and Home Away.
Background: Interest in the regulation of short-term rentals in Overland Park came after a shooting took place in March at a home in the 9700 block of 145th Terrace as the house was being rented out on a short-term vacation rental.
