OCEAN CITY, Md. (AP) - Zoning officials in Ocean City are considering placing new restrictions on renting single-family homes.

The Daily Times of Salisbury ( reports that the Planning and Zoning Commission took up the issue after getting complaints from neighbors of a home that’s frequently rented out to large groups. The home is in a neighborhood of year-round residents who say the renters have plagued the neighborhood with noise and trash.

The commission held a standing-room-only meeting Tuesday night, and neighbors complained that the house has been occupied by more than 20 people.

Zoning Administrator Blaine Smith says the town already has rules preventing more than four unrelated people from renting a house.

The commission will send a recommendation on how to address the issue to the mayor and town council.
