“Everyone is one real estate deal away from a living nightmare”

Short-Term Rentals (STRs) that are disruptive are not good neighbours. No one wants to live next door to a disruptive neighbour. Disruptive Short-Term Rentals threaten the personal safety and security of neighbours and municipal law enforcement staff and devalue adjacent properties.  Noisy and belligerent renters disrupt the peaceful and quiet enjoyment of residential neighbourhood life. This could happen to you.

According to the Township of Oro-Medonte, STRs are prohibited in residential neighbourhoods. STR operators are now attempting to overturn this law.   We need to meet this challenge by participating in the upcoming Ontario Land Tribunal (OLT). On February 17 th 2021, Oro-Medonte Good Neighbours Alliance was awarded “party status”. This means we can be a voice of Oro-Medonte homeowners and participate fully in the proceedings. This website describes the ongoing problem of STRs, the current legal situation and how you can become involved, including by making a contribution to help us represent you.

The Township Defers Decision on Licencing; Read About OMGNA’s Position

 

 

On Wednesday, June 22, 2022, Council considered a draft STR licensing by-law.  Significant concerns were raised by the Good Neighbours Alliance regarding this proposal.  Council decided not to proceed with the licencing proposal at this time. Thought the Township has indicated that the Official Plan and Zoning By-law now in progress  will include new provisions on STRs and commercial accommodations. Good Neighbours Alliance remains focussed on ensuring that the existing prohibition on STRs in our residential neighbourhoods remains in place.
