December 18, 2023

At their meeting scheduled for 10 am tomorrow, December 19th, the Washoe County Board of Commissioners have on their agenda (Agenda Item 9) to discuss permitting and enforcement of Short Term Rentals (STRs). Public comment will be allowed remotely at the Incline Village Library.

  • Removing the outdoor fireplace permit requirement from Truckee Meadows Fire Protection District.
  • Allowing pro-rated permitting fees.
  • Requiring a new STR permit upon property sale.
  • Allowing a grace period for renewal permits in select circumstances.
  • Addressing trash and noise citations from other agencies as STR violations.
  • Removing the notarization requirement for STR permit renewal applications.
  • Clarify that one-year suspensions for permit revocations are applicable to the property owner, not the parcel.
  • Allowing STR permit revocation for unpermitted construction activity on the property.
  • Updating appeal timelines for stop activity orders.
  • Increasing fines for STR violations.
  • Exploring potential reductions in STR permitting fees for partial home rentals.
