New Fairfield closes hearing on regulating Airbnb listings

The New Fairfield Zoning Commission has closed the public hearing process about concerns or benefits of short term vacation rentals like Air BnBs.  Several dozen residents attended the hearing and most spoke in opposition with concerns about noise, overcrowding and a strain on infrastructure like septic systems.  Officials have said while a homeowners’ association could set rules for the community, rental restrictions fall under zoning regulations.  If regulations are crafted, they will also be subject to a hearing.  The zoners will likely look at rentals shorter than 7 days, but not an outright ban because of a lack of enforcement staff.
