Bill 2-16, Transient Housing - Licensing and Registration
On September 25, the Committee (3-0) tentatively 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~ maximum of
90 days in~ 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
limitation on the number of days the property can be used as~ Short-Term Residential
The Committee in all other respects agreed with the Planning Board recommendation to include the
following limitations 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 maximum rentals in a calendar year to 90 days, counting only when the owner or
authorized 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.
Require one off-street parking space for each rental contract, unless the online listing indicates that
vehicle parking is prohibited.
The Committee declined to amend the standards for a bed and breakfast at this time. The Committee was
persuaded by Staff that such a change would be beyond the scope of the advertisement for ZTA 17-03.
