Last month, Honolulu City Council moved forward several bills re: vacation rentals. Tomorrow (Tue. 1/22) at 10:30am, Honolulu City Council’s Planning Committee will be hearing the bills. Vacation rentals take away what little affordable housing is left in Hawaii, renting it out short-term to tourists instead.
We strongly support Bill 85 because we need strong enforcement of vacation rentals before we can permit more. It is essential that we hold platforms like Airbnb accountable and make sure they’re transparent with their data on their hosts and listings.
