Canton City Council has voted to ban online housing rentals in single-family neighborhoods, a move that many say will make Airbnb nearly impossible in the city. Now, only multi-family residences with conditional use permits can be rented online.
“The solution to this was really already on our books and quite frankly working great in multiple home occupations. My feeling is using Airbnb as a conditional-use permit makes a lot more sense than a zone change,” he said.
Mariol says Canton only had nine Airbnb locations before the ordinance.
