Home-sharing stays are no longer welcome in Carmel.
The city announced this Tuesday that it sent letters to 28 residents who were renting out their homes on Airbnb, notifying them that they are in violation of city zoning laws and demanding they cease operations within 10 days or file a request for a zoning variance.
The action comes in response to “a number of complaints from local residents, homeowner associations and representatives of local hotels about the issue,” the city said in a written statement....Carmel was the fifth busiest community in the state for guest arrivals, with 1,900 overnight visitors using Airbnb. The business generated a total of $239,000 for hosts in Carmel.
The top four cities in Indiana were Indianapolis, South Bend, Bloomington and Michigan City, respectively.
