Project Update #7 10/18/2022

We have a few updates for you on the topic of short-term rentals. In case you missed it, here's what has happened since we last updated you:

  • On September 29, 2022, City Council extended the moratorium on new business licenses for short-term rentals until December 15, 2022.
  • On October 6, 2022 City Council reconvened on the topic of short-term rentals at a work session. They reviewed and discussed the draft ordinance that was recommended by the Planning Commission. You can watch the recording of the work session on our Youtube page.
  • At the work session, members of Council requested that the City attorney bring back a pre-amended version of the ordinance on initial posting (first reading). The pre-amended version of the ordinance includes amendments that will remove the cap on STR licenses, and not allow STRs as a permitted use in Suburban Residential or Urban Residential zones.

Review the pre-amended STR ordinance on initial posting here.

The ordinance contains an updated "Table of Permitted Uses". This table includes abbreviations for different zones. Zone areas and explanation of zones can be found on the Zoning Map.

Next steps

At the regular City Council meeting this Thursday, October 20, City Council will review the preamended draft ordinance on initial posting (first reading). You can attend the meeting in person or via Zoom.
