According to Mr. Joel Sims, Pass Christian Community Planner, the effort to deal with short term rental properties is alive and well. Although a date has yet to be determined, his plan is to start having regular committee meetings to iron out a proposed variance that will effectively address this issue. Once the committee has drafted a proposed variance and/or possible options, a public hearing will be held before going to the Board for final approval.
When asked whether or not a timetable had been established for the committee to complete its work, the answer was no. Having said that, Sims said that he was fully committed to finding a viable solution to this issue. If you have any questions or would like to provide input, please contact Sims at 228-452-3316 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
