Freeze on Short Term Rental Homes

(New Buffalo, MI) - The city of New Buffalo is not allowing any more short term rental homes to be created for now. Some neighborhoods are overrun by single-family homes rented especially during the summer.


City Manager Dave Richards says there were a growing number of complaints by full-time residents about changes occurring in their neighborhoods and the city council recognizing it as an issue put a freeze on registering additional short term rental homes. 


One of the issues is the partying that goes on at some of the homes rented to vacationers and weekend warriors. The cap was placed for eight months to allow the city to further study the

situation. Currently, there are 1500 or more vacation homes in the city.
