[See Editor’s Note](February 2020) Submission related to follow up on “Criteria applied to Grandfathered Short Term Rentals” in Asheville, NC

Hello City of Asheville, NC Government,

I would like to submit a follow up request for public information related to a now Completed February 2020 request for “City of Asheville, NC Grandfathered Short Term Rentals info” (

I don’t believe that the request was fully answered / completed. Specifically:

"I would like to request the criteria under which those grandfathered Short Term Rental exceptions occurred and whether that was made available to all parties who received violation notices regarding STRs."

To clarify, I’d also like to now request that you please provide emails or other correspondence with any criteria lists and what exceptions were made (such as not having to have an owner / host present on site, having more than 2BRs, having stove, etc).

Please also provide information about where this info. was posted online or how it was made equally available to all persons who received letters to terminate their STRs.

The information requested should include responsive records during the time period of June 01, 2015 to February 15, 2020.

Thank you for your assistance!
