OPINION: Homeowner Urges Regulation of Vacation Home Rentals

November 15, 2011

    Chelan County Commissioners have been

discussion the issue or vacation home rentals, and if there should be any restrictions on their activity in

unincorporated areas of the county.
    Last week we heard from Nancy Smith with the

Leavenworth Chamber of Commerce. Smith is representing a group of realtors and vacation home rental owners who are

vehemently opposed to any restrictions the county might try to impose.
    Today we hear from

homeowner Werner Janssen, who offers a different opinion. Janssen believes the vacation home rentals detract from

the peace of full time home owners, and should be regulated as commercial entities.
