Learn about why Clackamas County may regulate short-term rental properties
A short-term, or vacation rental, is generally defined as renting all or part of a furnished home, apartment or condominium for a limited stay (typically 30 days or less), typically on a nightly or weekly basis. Since an increasing number of county homeowners are interested in using their residences for short-term rentals, and the county’s zoning code does not specifically address short-term rentals, it is time to decide whether the county should allow and regulate this use.
Whether you rent out your residence or want to, or live near someone who does, you’re invited to learn more about this topic and let us know your thoughts about possible regulations. Specific issues to be discussed include types and locations of residences where this use may be allowed and operational aspects that may be regulated such as garbage collection, off-street parking, maximum days rented per year, noise, the maximum number of occupants, and building and fire safety.
