At the July 2 meeting, City Council heard public testimony and made amendments to the proposed accessory short-term rental regulations.
The new regulations will allow residents to rent up to two bedrooms to overnight guests through a simple permit, rather than the more involved conditional use process. Short-term rentals will be allowed in single-dwelling units, such as houses and duplexes. Multi-dwelling structures, such as apartments and condos, will be addressed by Council later this year.
Following several hours of testimony, Council moved the accessory short-term rental package forward with the following changes:
Council will reconvene on July 23 to vote on the final package of regulations. Amended code language and explanatory commentary will be available July 18 for public review and will be posted on the project website www.portlandoregon.com/bps/ricap.
