CONWAY — Legal briefs recently filed by a Conway short-term rental owner and the New Hampshire Association of Realtors aim to make the case to the state Supreme Court that STRs are legal under the town of Conway's zoning ordinance.

Town of Conway v. Scott Kudrick resulted from a 2021 vote that saw residents rejecting a proposal by selectmen to allow non-owner-occupied STRs anywhere that single-family homes are permitted in town. Voters did, however, give selectmen the authority to regulate STRs.

Too many short-term rentals in one area leads to less long-term rentals which drives up rents. People buying up properties to use for short-term rentals also drives up home prices. Supply and demand 😢. People who work in the service businesses (especially Hotels & Restaurants) will no longer be able to afford to live where they work. There has to be a solution... maybe a limit in each neighborhood?

Another year of JoE bIdEn and we will look back and laugh that anyone thought short term rentals were a problem as we forage for food to avoid starvation.
