LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) – Neighbors in one Las Vegas Valley community complain about several illegal short-term rentals on their street that occasionally bring noise or parties, and Metro Police ask the community to report problem properties during the week of the Super Bowl.

The neighborhood is in a quiet community off Eastern Avenue and Tropicana Road.

“People coming and going. The music gets loud…parties. Just imagine with the Super Bowl,” said a concerned anonymous person in the neighborhood. Several neighbors approached FOX5 about the problem.

“My neighborhood is riddled with them,” one resident wrote to Chair Tick Segerblom on “X,” also writing that another neighbor reported their concerns to Code Enforcement and counted five on the same street within two blocks. Segerblom said on the platform he would direct the complaints to the appropriate officials.

Metro Police tell FOX5 on “Behind the Badge” that they’re zeroing in on these properties during the week of the Super Bowl, as these properties can cause crowds and violence.

“Please let us know what’s going on in your community so that way we’re able to respond to these particular parties,” said Sgt. Alejandra Zambrano. For violent incidents, residents should call 911, and for noise complaints, they should call 311. Cities and Clark County also have ways to report illegal short-term rental properties online.

Several neighbors tell FOX5, there are too many short-term rentals in the area.

“So close together, its going to takes away from the neighborhood. Neighborhoods are for families,” the concerned person said.

Clark County has not issued any short-term rental licenses, yet, telling FOX5 that officials are still reviewing applications. When licenses are approved, the county requires a distance separation of 1,000 feet between short-term rentals.

The Greater Las Vegas Short-Term Rental Association has criticized Clark County’s licensure process and ordinance, appealing to the Nevada Supreme Court for review. A spokesperson told FOX5 last fall, due to the lengthy process for licenses, some property owners are operating illegally to pay the bills.
