If the Conditional Use land use review is approved you will be required to complete a site inspection to verify the bedroom requirements prior to operating the accessory short term rental on the premises. You will need to submit a Type B Residential Fee Paid Inspection Form to complete the required bedroom inspection. The Type B Residential Fee Paid Inspection fee is $196.00 ($175 + 12% State Surcharge). If a BDS inspection verifies that the required interconnected smoke detectors and carbon monoxide alarms were not installed at the time of the initial inspection, a $110 reinspection fee will be assessed to verify compliance after the necessary corrections
You may submit a Type B Residential Fee Paid Inspection form either by mail or in person.
