Majority of Plano Residents ‘Uncomfortable’ with STRs

More than 60% of respondents to a Plano community survey reported they would be “very uncomfortable” having a short-term rental on their block, according to data presented at a June 12 City Council meeting.

Results from the community survey, which concluded in May, will inform the discussions of a short-term rental citizen task force. The task force is slated to hold its first meeting later in June.

In a nutshell

Jeff Barton, co-founding partner of Gap Strategies, briefed council members June 12 on the status, schedule and goals of the short-term rental study. He presented results of the community survey on short-term rentals and shared a timeline for moving forward.

Gap Strategies, a consulting firm specializing in public policy, public involvement, urban planning and infrastructure, was directed by the city earlier this year to help with the survey and the task force.
