Title

Update on the Los Alamos County Short-term Rental Program Process

Body

Los Alamos County has contracted with Wilson & Co. to engage the community to create a Short-term Rental (STR) program report that will establish a mechanism for STRs to legally operate in the County, and that will effectively manage the benefits and drawbacks of STRs. STRs, which commonly use sites such as AirBnb, Vrbo, and FlipKey, are defined as: "any dwelling unit, or part thereof, where lodging is provided for no more than 30 days for compensation." Currently, the Los Alamos County Development Code is silent regarding STRs requirements and regulations.

 

The purpose of this presentation is to provide County Council with an update on the process of developing an ordinance for regulating STRs, respond to questions from Council and receive guidance on next steps toward finalizing a draft ordinance.
