The purpose of the committee is to develop purposeful and sensical government regulation surrounding vacation rentals throughout our communities. The President of the committee, Max Jolley, owner of St. George Vacation Rentals, stated “we are very excited to start working with governments and communities across the state because we believe that by working together, we can make communities more prosperous and harmonious”.
Committee members have already seen success working with regulatory agencies and communities prior to joining the Government Affairs Committee. Brad Stewart of Stewart Mountain Lodging in Sundance has seen a lot of success working with HOAs (Homeowner Associations) to establish guidelines for handling vacation rentals in communities with homeowner associations. “It’s amazing the effect listening and discussing proven best practices has on communities. We have already seen happier and more understanding communities all over Sundance”.
Adrienne Ruderman, the owner of Alta Chalets since the mid 90s, mentioned that she takes pride in her company’s commitment to the community and the open and ongoing dialogue with the local municipality. “I see a lot of benefit that comes in communities where there are proactive properties managers. Managers who respond immediately to concerns and ensure guests know what their responsibilities are, make the community much better.”
