and Bill 2-16, Transient Housing - Licensing and Registration
On September 25, 2017, the Committee (3-0) recommended approval of ZTA 17-03 with revisions to
Subsection 126.96.36.199.I.2.b and c as follows:
The dwelling unit used as
Short-Term Rental must be the [[applicant's]l property owner's
or owner-authorized resident 's primary residence, regardless of dwelling unit~
the [[applicant]] property owner or owner-authorized resident is not present in the
residence, the property can be used as~ Short-Term Residential Rental for~ maximu m of
90 days inf!: calendar year.
the [[applicant]l property owner or owner-authorized resident
is physically present [[in]] and occupies the residence during the rental stay, there is no
limitatio n on the number of days the property can be used as
After the Commit tee meeting, a poll of Committee members indicated support for making the ZTA
effective on July 1, 2018. The delay in the effective date will give the Department of Health and Human
Services time to prepare to administer the licensing program under Bill 2-16.
The Committee in all other respects agreed with the Planning Board recommendation to include the
following limitatio ns on short-term residential rental:
Allow only on sites without either a farm tenant dwelling or an accessory apartment.
Allow only if the site is the primary resident of the applicant.
Limit the maximu m rentals in a calendar year to 90 days, counting only when the owner or
authoriz ed resident is absent.
Limit the total number of adult overnight guests to six.
Limit the total number of adult overnight guests per bedroom to two.
