Phoenix Planning and Development Department Launches New On-line Services for Short-term Vacation Rental Property Registrations and Searcheshttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/planning-and-development/1614Planning and Development11/6/2020 4:00:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/1614/newsroom image.jpgPhoenix Planning and Development Department Launches New On-line Services for Short-term Vacation Rental Property Registrations and Searches<div class="ExternalClass2C3B66A710F548C098B19B0D74C531C0"><html> <p>​Searching for or registering a short-term vacation rental property in Phoenix is a lot easier now, thanks to a new online self-registration portal. The city of Phoenix's Planning and Development Department just launched the portal that will make the registration process more efficient for property owners. It will also make it easier to find rentals and the owner's emergency contact information by surrounding property owners should there be management issues. </p> <p>In 2019, the Arizona Legislature authorized municipalities to create provisions for short-term vacation rentals (Arizona Revised Statutes (A.R.S. §9-500.39) to help manage them as the law requires all cities to allow them within their city. Phoenix adopted the Short-Term Vacation Rental Ordinance (G-6653) in early 2020, to implement the law passed by the State Legislature. </p> <p>The Short-Term Vacation Rental Ordinance<a href="/pddsite/Documents/ORD6653-G%20_Signed%20Short%20Term%20Vacation%20Rental%20Ordinance.pdf" target="_blank"><span style="text-decoration:underline;"> (ORDINANCE G-6653)</span></a> requires owners of short-term or vacation rentals to register with the city and provide emergency and complaint contact information. The ordinance outlines vacation rental violations and reaffirms prohibited types of uses, such as banquet halls and large parties, and introduces an enhanced penalty structure.</p> <p>Two new features have been added to the website and takes customers directly to the online PHX At Your Service Portal<span style="text-decoration:line-through;">s</span>.  Property owners should visit  <a href="/pdd/codes-ordinances/short-term-rentals" target="_blank"><span style="text-decoration:underline;">https://www.phoenix.gov/pdd/codes-ordinances/short-term-rentals</span></a> to register their short-term vacation rental property. Neighbors impacted by a short-term vacation rental property should visit that site to find the contact information for the manager of that property to communicate about renter issues.</p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/pddNewsplanning-and-developmentPDD

City of Phoenix takes Action to Help Restaurant Owners Maximize Business while Following Safe Seating Requirements during COVID-19 Emergencyhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/planning-and-development/1565Planning and Development10/14/2020 4:00:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/1565/outdoor dine.JPGCity of Phoenix takes Action to Help Restaurant Owners Maximize Business while Following Safe Seating Requirements during COVID-19 Emergency<div class="ExternalClass1C1AAB84D0D74047B9F62C91D22E4360"><html> <p>(Phoenix) The Phoenix City Council approved the creation of Temporary Outdoor Dining and Alcohol Consumption Areas to allow restaurants to implement outside dining to accommodate their customers while meeting social distancing requirements and recommendations. The temporary outdoor dining program allows the Planning and Development Department to issue an “Emergency Declaration Temporary Outdoor Dining Administrative Temporary Use Permit" (ATUP) at no fee.</p> <p> “Being responsive to businesses and their challenges during the pandemic has been a priority for the city and our staff," said Planning and Development Department Director Alan Stephenson. “For the restaurants who need to reduce their indoor capacity for safety, outside offers an option to maximize the customers they can serve without compromising that safety."</p> <p>Getting a use permit for outdoor dining can normally take between four to six weeks and requires a public hearing process. With the ATUP, staff will review the plans, within typically a 15-day time frame, and provide a temporary permit at no charge. The restaurant will not be required to have permanent fencing in place. Temporary enclosures will be permitted for areas serving alcohol to accommodate state requirements.</p> <p>For more information on the program and to submit plans, visit <a href="/pdd/temp-outdoor-dining" target="_blank"><span style="text-decoration:underline;">https://www.phoenix.gov/pdd/temp-outdoor-dining</span></a>.</p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/pddNewsplanning-and-developmentPDD
