Short-Term Vacation Rental Update

The City has been working with residents, short-term vacation rental owners, property management companies, and the community at large to build consensus and revise the short-term vacation rental regulations.  We have been successful in coming together and developing reasonable recommendations to address the concerns raised during this process. 

Final recommendations as of June 30, 2017 are available here. Associated maps and data sheet available here.
