Neighbors for Neighborhoods of LQ

It's nice to meet you

We are La Quinta neighbors advocating for the elimination of Short Term Vacation Rental (STVR’s) problems within our residential communities!


The Problem. The conversion of single family homes into commercial short term vacation rentals (STVR’s) is creating serious problems for La Quinta residents.  The problem extends to every neighborhood in the city.  Read More...

Our Mission is to recruit and unite home owners from all La Quinta communities to stop the commercial exploitation of our neighborhoods, to develop a vision to restore residents’ peace, quiet, safety and quality of life which are constantly being altered and disrupted by STVRs and to translate this vision into a city ordinance which the mayor and city council can enact.

Neighbors for Neighborhoods LQ (N4N) is a group formed by La Quinta residents to protect single family neighborhoods.   We support home sharing when the property owner is present on-site.  We oppose Short Term Vacation Rentals (STVRs) in all La Quinta communities zoned residential.

* June 7, 2021 Supreme Judicial Court: Short Term Vacation Rentals (STVRs) Not Consistent with Single-Family Residential Zoning.  In a ruling that could affect short-term rental owners and municipalities across Massachusetts, the Court rejected the argument that short-term rentals were a permissible primary use as a “one-family detached house,” calling it “fundamentally flawed” for failing to “recognize that the short-term rental use of a home is inconsistent with the zoning purpose of the single-residence zoning district in which it is situated, i.e., to preserve the residential character of the neighborhood.”  Click to see..
