Southampton considers revising short-term rental rules for special events

December 05, 2017 05:49PM

Rules preventing short-term rentals in Southampton could be changed to allow homeowners to lease their properties for special events in the East End. Current law requires a two-week minimum for leases, but the Southampton Town Board is considering exceptions for events like golf’s U.S. Open, which will be played at Shinnecock Hills this summer, due to a lack of hotel rooms in the area. The board will listen to residents’ opinions at a meeting on Tuesday, December 12. [27 East]
