Short-Term Rentals

Informational Meeting Co-Hosted by the TGTIA and the City of Treasure Island

The Greater Treasure Island Association (TGTIA) and the City of Treasure Island are co-sponsoring an informational meeting and panel discussion regarding impending legislation that would preempt the City of Treasure Island’s authority to regulate short-term rentals. 

 

Recently, the number of single-family homes being converted into mini-hotels has significantly increased.  The proliferation of these converted rentals is overtaking residential neighborhoods and posing significant public safety risks.  This public informational meeting is scheduled for Thursday, February 13th, 6pm, in the auditorium of the Treasure Island City Hall. 

 

The panelists include:

Garry Brumback, Treasure Island City Manager

Jennifer Cowan, Treasure Island City Attorney

Doug Izzo, Governmental Affairs, Tampa Bay Beaches Chamber of Commerce

Kathleen Peters, District 6 Commissioner, Pinellas County Board of Commissioners

 

TGTIA is a volunteer organization of approximately 100 residents of Treasure Island working together to preserve the distinctive character of Treasure Island.  Membership is open to the public.
