Officials in Clark County are reacting to a judge’s ruling that some of the county’s regulations on short-term rentals violate the state constitution. They informed us that the court injunction against the county’s short-term rental ordinance has been received, but that the injunction does not prevent Clark County from granting permits.
The deadline to submit an application for one is March 13. The judge ruled that the ordinance was
“facially unconstitutionally vague and/or overbroad”,
The county’s unannounced property inspections, the ten-person cap on gathering size, and the proposed citation and fee system are all points of contention.
On Friday, it was announced by the Greater Las Vegas Short-Term Rental Association: High-tech rental listing platforms like Airbnb and VRBO have given struggling homeowners a way to supplement or even replace their income by renting out their homes or rooms to travelers, much like Uber, Lyft, and Turo have lifted many struggling people out of poverty and created entrepreneurs overnight.
Benefiting not only the owners of these private rentals, but also many individuals and families through newly created jobs, bringing new revenue to small businesses outside traditional city-center attraction areas who get to welcome these travelers into their establishments, and creating thousands of individual ambassadors promoting this great State of Nevada and all that it has to offer, especially to those from out of state. For the State, City, or County, the total cost is negligible.

The recent spike in gas, food, and other commodity prices has pushed U.S. inflation to its highest levels in 40 years, putting a strain on households and likely triggering further inflationary woes, such as higher interest rates and a looming recession, resulting in even more hardship for individuals, families, seniors on a fixed income, retirees, and the working poor here in Nevada and across the United States, while big businesses post record profits and executive pay reaches record highs.
Why are Nevada’s elected officials so set on keeping their constituents from reaping the personal, familial, and economic rewards of the sharing economy?
The practice of renting out one’s home to visitors predates the founding of the United States. Property ownership has always been a common way for people to make a living. In addition to hiring people, it has also increased foot traffic to nearby businesses, helping to boost the area’s economy.
Today, however, technology has made this practice simpler, safer, and more available to people all over the world. For example, a large, low-income family group that could never afford a hotel and restaurant holiday can now take the same trips that their higher-income counterparts have always taken.
Our state and municipal government still treats this sector as if it were brand new. They’ve treated rentals for less than 31 days with contempt, disrespect, and ignorance, effectively labelling them all as rager-party scenes.
