Lynnfield is considering a ban on short-term rentals — often booked through websites like Airbnb and HomeAway.
Town selectmen are considering changes to the bylaws after a man was shot and killed during a party at a rented mansion in Lynnfield, back in May. That property was rented through FlipKey, a part of TripAdvisor.
Airbnb did not comment specifically on Lynnfield, but did send a statement saying they are "dedicated to working with governments and local lawmakers to develop rules for home sharing that work for our community" and that they are commited to the safety. HomeAway did not return requests for comment.
