🚨Unmasking the Impact as HB 1121 FaIls: Time to Fight for Ourselves if Our Representatives Won't!🚨Image title

In a recent turn of events, House Bill 1121 (HB 1121) has met its demise, leaving Tybee Island at a crossroads regarding the proposed Short-Term Vacation Rental (STVR) ordinance. This unexpected development brings both relief and uncertainty, shedding light on the intricate dynamics shaping the island's legislative landscape.

 Impact on Tybee Island's STVR
Proposed Ordinance:

Legislative Void: With the failure of HB 1121, the island's STVR ordinance faces a legislative void, requiring renewed attention from the community. There is no protection or immunity offered at a State level at this time. Community members felt that this Bill may protect them on Tybee Island and chose not to get involved in the local discussions before.

Community Scrutiny: Residents, property owners, and local businesses are prompted to scrutinize the proposed STVR ordinance, emphasizing the need for a comprehensive, community-oriented approach.

Stakeholder Concerns: As discussions intensify, addressing the concerns of all stakeholders becomes paramount, ensuring that future regulations are fair, balanced, and reflective of community interests. The proposal ending the use of a home as a vacation rental (upon sale or titlework changes) is an overreach of the City Council and affects everyone's private property rights. 

Opportunity for Engagement: The legislative setback provides an opportunity for community members to actively engage in shaping the direction of STVR regulations on Tybee Island.

Collective Action: The fate of the island's rental landscape is intertwined with the collective action and advocacy of its community members, emphasizing the significance of united efforts.
