Mayor wants to abolish short-term rentals in Orange Beach neighborhoods

A proposal to amend the Orange Beach zoning ordinance could eliminate short-term rentals in all residential areas.

The plan is to abolish the ability to rent a house or duplex for shorter than a month in any residential zone.

“I think the reasoning is obvious,” Mayor Tony Kennon said. “It is to protect the sanctity of our neighborhoods. When you are renting weekly you are running a business.”
