Short Term Rental
"Short Term Rental" generally refers to the rental of a habitable structure for a period of less than 30 days. Advancements in technology have made possible a sharing economy which is creating some capability issues with established residential neighborhoods. Websites such as Airbnb and VRBO have made it possible for transient guests to book accommodations in non-traditional locales. Is this nightly use by transient guests sufficiently different in character from residential use by the owner that it constitutes commercial use and warrants County concern? Your opinion and feedback is highly valued. Thank you in advance for completing the following brief survey of 24 questions.
