STR Moratorium and Regulation Revision Update

Short-Term Rental Moratorium for Unincorporated Summit County

The Board of County Commissioners approved a resolution on May 24, 2022, to pass a temporary nine month moratorium on the acceptance and issuance of land use approvals for commercial lodging operations, including Short-Term Rental licenses in the Neighborhood Overlay Zone in unincorporated Summit County. This moratorium does not apply to properties within the Resort Overlay Zone. This moratorium took effect at 3:35 p.m. on Tuesday, May 24, 2022.

The purpose of the moratorium is to allow staff time to propose new regulations to address the increase in STRs in the Neighborhood Overlay Zone and their impact on local workforce housing, as well as to address inconsistencies and conflicts within the Land Use and Development Code (“Code”) regarding commercial lodging operations and short-term vacation rentals.

The moratorium only applies to new licenses in the Neighborhood Overlay Zone and does not affect existing licenses, pending applications, or renewals.
