Short Term Rentals Blog

Summit County is working to develop regulations for short term rentals (STRs), which will be applicable to properties in the unincorporated areas of Summit County. The scope of this project includes establishing STR regulations that address:
  • - Permitting and fees
  • - Regulation of key neighborhood impacts (e.g., parking and trash) 
  • - Regulation of life safety issues (e.g., smoke and carbon monoxide detectors)
  • - An effective compliance-monitoring and enforcement system.
This blog will keep you abreast of relevant meetings, proposed policies, key issues and other matters related to this process.

STR Process Update: Meeting materials for the October 23 County Commissioners’ Public Hearing

Posted on October 19, 2018 at 2:13 PM by Dorothy Martinez

Just a reminder that the Board of County Commissioners will review the draft short-term vacation rental regulations for unincorporated Summit County at a public hearing on Tuesday, October 23 at 1:30 p.m. at the Frisco Adventure Park Day Lodge, located at 616 Recreation Way in Frisco. Please note the change to the BOCC’s regular meeting location due to early voting at the County Courthouse. At the October 23 meeting, the BOCC will review the draft STR regulations and the suggested changes recommended by the Countywide Planning Commission, and hear public testimony. This meeting will include a public hearing, during which members of the public are invited to provide comment.


The October 23 meeting materials are available for review on the County website at:  The STR materials begin on page 81. 


Please note that the current drafts of the proposed STR regulations and permit application materials (Attachments C and D) do not reflect the revisions that have been recommended by the Countywide Planning Commission, or potential revisions that could be made to address resort areas.  These potential revisions are described in detail in the staff report and will be made if they are supported by the BOCC.
