Below you will find a top level summary of the presented OPT OUT proposal by the START Movement to the City of Arlington in April of 2019. This proposal allows neighborhoods that do not want STRs to petition for STR Exclusion Rezoning - this is similar to the effective and popular plan used in Galveston, TX for over 4 years. This plan does not ban hundreds of responsible short term rental owners with no complaints, and would thwart a lengthy and costly legal fight that will put Arlington STRs and neighborhoods in limbo.
