Short Term Rentals
The Town Council has discussed how best to regulate and monitor Short-term Rentals (STRs) in the community since early 2022. Town Council has reviewed and considered feedback from the public on draft regulations and has provided staff with direction to develop a regulatory framework.
These regulations aim to gather better information on STRs and mitigate any negative impacts that STRs may create by allowing permitted short-term rentals to operate within the Town. The goal is to have an STR permit system in place as soon as possible (depending on the complexity of the regulations). The Council recognizes that flexibility is necessary for maintaining responsiveness to the community's desires and market conditions for short-term Rentals.
The Council last met to discuss regulations at the November 9 meeting. At this meeting, Council approved Ordinance 6 (STR regulations) on second reading and further discussed the draftregulations. The draft regulatory framework may be viewed below:
- Draft STR Regulatory Framework (PDF)
- Draft STR Rental Permit Types, Requirements, Fees & Violations (PDF)
- Draft STR Self-compliance Affidavit (PDF)
- Draft STR Permit FAQs (PDF)
- Draft STR Good Neighbor Guidelines (PDF)
Currently, Council is considering an implementation date of May 1, 2023.
What are Short-Term Rentals?
Short-term rental is a type of lodging wherein a dwelling unit, either in full or in part, is rented to a temporary occupant(s) for fewer than thirty (30) consecutive days. Often facilitated by peer-to-peer websites such as VRBO.com and AirBnB.com, short-term rentals are most commonly residential properties available for rent. A bed and breakfast is sometimes considered a type of short-term rental.
The Town of Snowmass Village will require hosts to obtain a license in order to offer a short-term rental as part of their property.
Permits will require STR applicants to provide information regarding ownership, contact information, where the property is listed, the number of bedrooms, and the number of parking spaces.
There are four types of short-term rental permits:
- Short-term Rental Permit Type 1: Hotels
- Short-term Rental Permit Type 2: Multi-family A
- Short-term Rental Permit Type 3: Multi-family B
- Short-term Rental Permit Type 4: Single-family homes & Duplexes
