§ 114.01 PURPOSE.
   (A)   The City Council finds the rental of dwelling units in the City of Charlevoix provides value to our local economy but also brings with it negative externalities affecting the year-round quality of neighborhoods, housing supply, and health and safety. The City Council has enacted this regulatory ordinance to strike a regulatory balance between the interests of community residents, business owners, visitors, and property owners.
   (B)   The community has different expectations for noise, occupant loads, and transient activity in its residential neighborhoods than it does in commercial, and even mixed-used zones where hotels are currently permitted. The renting of a home on a short-term basis is substantially more like a business than traditional residential use.
