On Tuesday, the Washoe County Commissioners will be discussing and possibly revising the fees charged for Short Term Rental (STR) permits and also placing a cap on the number of STRs in Incline Village/Crystal Bay (unincorporated Washoe County).
Agenda Item #9 is a recommendation to adopt Resolution R23-125 amending short-term rental (STR) application fees within the Washoe County Development Code Master Fee Schedule, with an effective date of October 1, 2023. This amendment updates fees related to the administration and enforcement of STR standards and permits in unincorporated Washoe County. Proposed updates include: increases of approximately $270-$350 for Tier 1 STR permit applications and renewals; new fees for applicant-requested changes to existing STR permits; and a new fee for applicant appeals of Tier 1 STR permits.
Agenda Item #10 is a recommendation to amend Washoe County Code Chapters 110 (Development Code) and 125 (Administrative Enforcement Code) to create the necessary code language to limit the number of short-term rentals (STRs) operating in unincorporated Washoe County. The amendments may also include other changes to streamline and clarify current STR permitting and enforcement processes.
