The ordinance to which you are referring is NOT a City Ordinance.  It is a proposed resolution by the Huntsville Council of Neighborhood Associations addressing the need for an ordinance to help neighborhoods that are experiencing issues with rental properties. 


The Huntsville Council of Neighborhood Associations is not sanctioned by the City of Huntsville and does NOT have authority to pass such an ordinance. The passage of an ordinance of this magnitude would require drafting of legislation, public hearings, etc.., and is not something that would happen overnight.


We have been monitoring the proposed resolution by the Huntsville Council of Neighborhood Associations and have been in discussion with them as well as with the City of Huntsville.  We certainly understand the concern that property managers and real estate investors have over an ordinance of this kind, which in our opinion would be onerous and pose an economic hindrance to our industry.


We will continue to maintain a dialogue with all parties involved and make certain property managers and investors have a seat at the table.  We will notify the HAAR membership if there is a need to mobilize on any proposed ordinance(s), but at this stage, there is no proposed rental ordinance in play for the City of Huntsville to even consider.
