Hey – there’s a solution for the homes that Canterbury Woods owns on Spazier Avenue but cannot occupy, rent them out to transients. How’s that for a keen idea for the NIMBYs that opposed CW from letting employees and guests stay in them?
The tune is different in P.G., where the City Council recently changed a 1993 law prohibiting short-term rentals. Under the new deal, vacation rentals are legit if landlords collect a 10 percent TOT and pay a $200-per-year licensing fee. The cash-strapped city expects about $200,000 annually out of the deal.
