Purpose of the Short Term Rental Task Force

In July 2016 the City Council appointed a Short Term Rental Task Force to discuss code enforcement, devise a plan to work with platforms to get reporting data, the impact Short Term Rentals (STRs) have on Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs), consider establishing a program, regulations/restrictions on STRs, and report back to the City Council with recommendations.


The Task Force was an advisory body to the City Council and composed of five members—one representative from the City Council, one representative from the Planning Commission, one representative from the Historic Landmarks Board and two representatives from the Community.
