Short-Term Rentals 

With the growth of the "sharing economy," the City is seeing an increase in residents using popular websites like Airbnb and VRBO to offer their homes for short-term rentals.

Under the City's current zoning regulations, short-term rentals (rentals for a period of less than one month) are prohibited in residential zones R6, R9, RM-1, RM-2 and RM-3.

In zones where they are permitted, short-term rentals are classified as "Visitor Accommodations" and fall into two categories:

Hotel/Motel

Bed & Breakfast Inn

In addition to the required permits, the owner must also have a business license (PDF) and must pay accommodations tax.
