On July 15 at 7pm, the Jacksonville Beach City Council will be voting on legislation to regulate the 400+ short-term vacation rentals in Jacksonville Beach. It is important to note, the proposed ordinance is NOT banning short term vacation rentals, but rather requiring vacation rentals to register with the city, comply with state life safety requirements, obtain proper state licensing, pay the proper business taxes and tourist development taxes and defines occupancy limits and parking requirements.
