What areas of Brevard County will be affected by zoning changes?

Our County Commissioners are currently considering zoning changes, proposed by District 3 Commissioner John Tobia, which will allow daily Vacation Rentals in all residential zoning classifications in unincorporated Brevard County. Although the proposed changes will affect the zoning code of unincorporated Brevard County, ALL AREAS of Brevard County will be affected by increased traffic, crime, and higher rents for long-term rentals. These zoning changes will negatively affect the property owners and taxpayers in unincorporated Brevard County while benefitting the out-of-state investors who will buy up homes to rent out daily in formerly quiet family residential neighborhoods.
These outcomes of widespread legalization of short-term rentals, without restrictions, have been documented in communities across Florida and the US. We will be posting articles soon with research and citations of the devastation caused by short-term rentals to neighborhoods in similar areas of Florida.
