AirDNA Report provided to the TDA

At the August 2017 TDA meeting, a report was presented that contained information on AirBnB stays in Asheville and Buncombe County. This information was provided by a company named AirDNA.

Ideally, I would like to request all information (data and reports) provided to the TDA by AirDNA. I understand there can be licensing restrictions on these types of reports, but, at a minimum, I believe the information presented in a public TDA meeting should be considered a public record. If there is a licensing restriction that impacts the information that can be shared, I would like to request a copy of that agreement as well.

Thank you so much for your help!

    Hi Asheville Tourism Development Authority!
    As you know, I work for a website called Sunshine Request www.sunshinerequest.com. We built a site that makes it easier to make public records requests by filling out a simple form, and the results of any requests are posted on our site. This allows citizens to learn more about our great city and our local government, while saving staff from having to fulfill duplicate requests. If you have any questions about the project, please send me an email back.
    We recently received a request for information that may be available in your office, via SunshineRequest.com!
    Thank you for your time. Have a sunny day!
