Public invited to learn about and comment on new code amendment packages for short-term rentals, commercial filming, wireless services and more
On Tuesday, February 11, project staff will host an open house to share information about new regulations for short-term rentals and other code revisions, including:
The focus of the first hour of the open house will be on new rules for short-term rentals, defined as one or two bedrooms rented to nightly visitors by residents living in their home. Staff will give a short presentation on proposed changes to the bed and breakfast regulations at 5:15 p.m., followed by a question and answer session. Participants will then be able to discuss any of the other items in the code amendment package with staff around the room.
RICAP 6 Open House, 1900 SW 4th Ave, Rm 2500B
Tuesday, February 11
5 p.m. – 6 p.m Short Term Rental presentation
6 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. General Open House
The first hour will include a presentation and Q&A session about short-term rentals, followed by an open house format about all the amendment packages.
The open house will allow participants to learn about and submit comments on the proposed amendments, as well as next steps in the process. Deadline for comments is February 21. Staff will then incorporate public input into the Proposed Draft, which will be released in March for the Planning and Sustainability Commission's consideration.
The proposed amendments are part of the Regulatory Improvement Code Amendment Package (RICAP). This new package constitutes the sixth round (RICAP 6) of these relatively quick code fixes in response to community input. Unlike other regulatory improvement projects, RICAPs are limited to technical corrections and clarification of existing code, along with minor changes of existing policy.
