  1. I am tracing what happened to the term “Tourist Home” (Dwelling providing lodging to Transient Guest) in the Use Matric of the Frederick City LMC. It appears that it was removed as a part of the 2005 updates and Chuck may have information concerning same.. Can you or anyone shed any light on what happen to it and way Airbnbs would not be a Tourist Home and subject to Conditional Use regulations?
