With the proliferation of vacation ownership and short-term nightly rentals, City Council is interested in understanding the topic more in depth and how this matter is or is not impacting the community as it pertains to long-term rental housing, neighborhood character, sales & lodging tax collection, safety and enforcement.


The 2021-2022 Short Term Rental (STR) project is guided by the following purposes:


What is a Short-Term Rental?

  • Sleeping or housing establishments intended to be occupied on a short-term, transient basis.
  • Payment for occupancy is typically on a daily or weekly basis, and an average length of stay is 30 days or less.
  • Includes the uses of hotels, hostels, vacation home rentals, vacation rentals, and bed & breakfasts.
  • Defined by the Community Development Code (CDC) as commercial land uses

The CDC defines several Short-Term Rental uses:

  • Vacation Home Rental (VHR) = Single-Family home or duplex unit; the entire unit is rented
  • Vacation Rental = multiple-family unit; the entire unit is rented
  • Bed & Breakfast = SF home; owner/operator occupied; 2+ guestrooms*
    • *does not include Rental of 1 bedroom in resident-occupied dwelling unit
  • Temporary Short-Term Rental = SF home or duplex unit; entire unit; limited term and occurrence, Limited use, limited districts, no permit required

Short Term Rentals = all of the above
