If you’ve got opinions on short-term vacation rentals, the city needs them now.

What’s happening: City officials said Wednesday they are seeking members for an 11-person “Vacation Rental & Homeshare Workgroup.” Residents chosen to participate will discuss everything from the density of permitted vacation rentals in the city to their impact on the city’s housing supply.
