Short-Term Rentals

The City is reviewing options for how to regulate properties being used as short-term rentals (i.e. Airbnb, VRBO). Before bringing back a draft ordinance to the City Commission, the City would like to hear from stakeholders and community members. All feedback collected will help guide staff through the development of a short-term rental ordinance.

Staff held a public meeting September 26, 2017 and presented a draft framework to the City Commission November 14, 2017. As additional public meeting dates are set to discuss short-term rentals, they will be added below.

Additional Information

Staff held a public meeting on September 26, 2017 to meet with stakeholders and community members to outline the process for developing a framework for short-term rentals. Additionally, a survey was available through Lawrence Listens from September 26, 2017 to October 13, 2017. During that same time frame, staff received a number of letters and written testimony. This public input has been used to help guide the development process.
