Discussion: Short Term Rentals

During the Virginia General Assembly's 2017 legislative session, SB 1578 authorized localities to adopt ordinances requiring the registration of persons offering properties for short term rental. The Planning and Community Development Department created draft ordinance amendments related to short term rental of properties, which include properties rented through online services such as Airbnb and VRBO. 

Members of the public are invited to review the draft zoning ordinance amendments and provide comments. A public hearing will also be held at Planning Commission on Wednesday, April 11 at 7:00 p.m. in City Council Chambers.
