Short Term Rentals Blog

Summit County is implementing regulations for short term rentals (STRs), which are applicable to properties in the unincorporated areas of Summit County. The STR regulations 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 processes, policies, information and other matters related to our STR program.

STR Process Update: 3rd County Commissioners’ Public Hearing on December 18

Posted on November 16, 2018 at 11:16 AM by Dorothy Martinez

The Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) has continued their review of draft short-term vacation rental regulations for unincorporated Summit County to a third public hearing, which will take place at 9:00 a.m. on Tuesday, December 18, 2018 at the County Courthouse, 208 East Lincoln Ave. in Breckenridge. 


We appreciate the community’s continued involvement in this process and the input you have provided for County staff and decision makers’ consideration.  In response to the input received, the BOCC has tasked County staff with further evaluating several key issues raised by the public, and developing suggested revisions to the proposed regulations that could be made to address these concerns. Key areas of concern include occupancy provisions, special considerations for condo-hotels and fractional ownership units, and a revised process and timeline for rolling out the initial STR permitting process and handling annual permit renewals.  During the next month, County staff will be looking into options to revise the proposed regulations to address these concerns, which will be discussed with the BOCC at the December 18 meeting.  The December 18 meeting will include a public hearing, during which members of the public are invited to provide comments.


Please look for another blog update with a link to view the December 18 meeting materials online, once the materials are finalized and posted to the County website.
