VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - Community members in Valdosta took the initiative to help push the city forward by creating some "like home" spaces that will have a huge economic impact.
Many people flood to the downtown Valdosta area, whether it be for a weekend or for business during the weekday.
But now, the new Airbnb trend has reached the city and will allow for short-term stays if desired.
Most hotels are located off I-75, so the city is working towards creating a permit for others who may be interested, which will come with a length restriction of a week.
Orenduff said that since his children were grown, they decided to turn three rooms into spaces for short-term rent after hearing about Airbnb.
People who visit for one day or seven days will put money back into downtown, as they will hopefully take advantage of all the other activities downtown has to offer.
