A recent Wilmington ordinance sets a 2% cap on the number of city properties that can engage in vacation rentals. No property can be used for vacation rentals if another property already has city permission for that use within a 400-foot buffer. The ordinance hurt David and Peggy Schroeder, lifelong Wilmington residents who based retirement plans on being able to rent out a townhome under the city’s old rules. The Institute for Justice is helping the Schroeders challenge Wilmington’s rules in court. IJ Constitutional Law Fellow Adam Griffin discusses the Schroeders’ case and their attempt to secure their property rights.
