(February 2020) Request for City of Asheville, NC Grandfathered Short Term Rentals info

Hi City of Asheville, NC Government,

I would like to make a public records request for the following:

Please provide a list of any and all grandfathered Short Term Rentals, or STRs that have been allowed and approved which did not or do not meet the Homestay requirements (such as not having owner/applicant residing on property, etc).

Additionally, I would like to request the criteria under which those grandfather exceptions occurred and whether that was made available to all parties who received violation notices regarding STRs.

The above requests should include all responsive information from June 01, 2015 - January 26, 2020.

Thank you for your assistance!
