ASHEVILLE, N.C. (AP) — Officials in Asheville have three months to come up with rules and regulations regarding short-term vacation rentals after property owners pushed for change despite criticism from others who consider the practice a nuisance.

The Asheville Citizen-Times reports (http://avlne.ws/1laJ06v) city staffers plan to bring options to a City Council committee. The city also is considering easing rules for people who rent out a room in their home on a short-term basis. A full City Council vote would be required to make changes.

City Planning Director Judy Daniel said dramatic growth in short-term rentals prompted City Council members to ask city staffers to look into the issue.

Dozens of Asheville homes rent for as short as a night or two despite zoning rules prohibiting the practice in most residential neighborhoods.
