NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The City Council's Community Development Committee will be holding a public presentation and discussion on short-term rentals on Wednesday, March 4, at 6 p.m. in the City Council Chambers. 
The session will review the work happening in the Community Development Office and the Berkshire Regional Planning Commission pertaining to short-term rentals such as those advertised through web portals such as AirBnB. 
This meeting is intended to provide North Adams residents and stakeholders with relevant information and research pertaining to local-level regulations of short-term rentals of residential properties. Additionally, this meeting will be an opportunity for the committee and public in attendance to provide input that will help shape any short-term rental regulations yet to be developed by the city of North Adams. 
"This is an excellent opportunity for public stakeholders to hear what work and research has already been done by the Community Development Office, and to help inform any policy to be developed around short-term rentals going forward," said Committee Chairman Benjamin Lamb.
The Community Development Committee has been looking into regulations for short-term rentals for some time. The committee is a subcommittee of the North Adams City Council comprised of Councilors Lamb, Jason LaForest and Jessica Sweeney.
