PHOENIX — The city of Goodyear has developed new regulations for short-term rental owners that will go into effect at the start of the new year.

Under the new ordinance taking effect Jan. 1, owners will be required to obtain a short-term rental license, emergency and complaint contacts will be required to respond within a certain amount of time and neighbors must be notified, Goodyear said in a press release.

Registration for the $250 short-term rental license opens in December.

There will also be a sex offender background check.

The new revisions, which were approved Sept. 12, come after Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey signed Senate Bill 1168, allowing cities and towns to create their own short-term rental permit or license regulations.

“When the Legislature preempted local control over short-term rentals in 2016, we saw a landslide of unintended consequences created by this industry’s incredible popularity and investment potential across the state,” Mayor Joe Pizzillo said in the release.

“The Legislature’s most recent bill allows cities to more evenly balance the regulatory scale to balance the property rights of short-term rental owners with the quality of life of their neighbors.”
