Dear Point Venture Neighbor,
As you all are well aware, there seems to be a slight improvement, to the outrageous activities that have occurred at the Short Term Rental (STR, Nightly Vacations Rentals, Party Houses) properties in Point Venture. This did not happen without a lot of backbone, hard work and cost to the Point Venture Neighbors for Short Term Rental Reform Group. Currently our group has spent $50,000.00 with $75,000.00 more to go. The STR owners have banned together and sued the 2 Founding Members of the PV STR Reform Group in an effort to silence and stop the efforts to curb their STR activity.
Please read the story below and if you agree we ask that you respectfully consider helping us replenish our funds by donating to our Go Fund Me ( gofundme.com/StopSTRBullies ) You may donate anonymously and you may also donate to us directly. Any help you may be able to give is certainly appreciated and will benefit the future of the Point Venture Community.
Nightly/Short Term Rental (STR) owners are banning together in an effort to squelch all attempts our community may legally use to regulate their businesses/hotels in our neighborhood. We pay hard earned money each month to maintain our Property Owners Amenities, just to watch these STRs exploit them. These 50+ properties bring in hordes of people who use and abuse our pool, our park, our fitness room, and our club room. They tax our water and sewer system, cause more wear and tear to our roads, not to mention the disruptions they cause the neighboring properties! Some of these STRs advertise that they sleep up to 30 people a night! Imagine living next to a house turned into a hotel with 30 strangers each weekend, sometimes the transients change every 3 days! Even 10 strangers can wreak havoc, disrupting you, your peace and your neighborhood! We all are affected by these STRs. Some of us more so than others, especially the ones living adjacent to these STRs. Anyone of us is just a home or lot sale away from living next to an STR!
In Point Venture Section 3-1, the MAJORITY of lot owners attempted to LEGALLY change their deed restrictions requiring a respectable minimum rental duration of 90 days. Section 3-1 Nightly/Short Term Rental owners Richard Jackson, Lisa Jackson and Kathleen Woodall, filed a lawsuit preventing the change to the Deed Restrictions from being filed in Travis County.
The Jackson/Woodall April settlement demand is as follows: We are not to help anyone in PV change the restrictions for 5 years. We are to pay their Attorney fees, and give them any and all websites, email accounts, social media (google twitter, Facebook etc.) used to change the deed restrictions.
We plan to continue to fight back for YOU and the entire PV community, against these STRs and bullies, however we need your support!
