Wilmington city officials have kept a short-term rental ordinance intact despite it being ruled illegal by a North Carolina superior court judge.

The city's zoning ordinance places a 2% cap on how many properties can operate as rental homes in the same area. A New Hanover County Superior Court judge declared the ordinance "void and unenforceable." During a Jan. 6 meeting, however, city planning commission officials decided to delay revisions to the policy by at least three months.

The city attorney's office said the ordinance legally could remain in place and be enforced until the city's appeal is resolved in court.

"I've stayed everything in relation to [the ordinance] until the appellate process is complete," Assistant City Attorney Shawn Evans said. "So, it's not been court ordered that it can be changed at this time."

Members of the planning commission voted to 6-1 to remove scheduled changes to the ordinance from the agenda.
