Short Term Rentals Blog

Summit County is implementing regulations for short term rentals (STRs), which are applicable to properties in the unincorporated areas of Summit County. The STR regulations address:
  • - Permitting and fees
  • - Regulation of key neighborhood impacts (e.g., parking and trash) 
  • - Regulation of life safety issues (e.g., smoke and carbon monoxide detectors)
  • - An effective compliance-monitoring and enforcement system.
This blog will keep you abreast of relevant processes, policies, information and other matters related to our STR program.

Posted on October 26, 2018 at 9:44 AM by Dorothy Martinez

Thank you to everyone who attended the County Commissioners’ public hearing on October 23 and/or submitted comments on the draft short-term vacation rental regulations for unincorporated Summit County.  We appreciate your continued involvement in this process and the input you have provided for County staff and decision makers’ consideration.  The October 23 meeting materials can be found on the County website at


In response to the input received, the County Commissioners’ have tasked County staff with revising the draft regulations to incorporate the Countywide Planning Commission’s recommended changes, and to evaluate options to address key areas of community concern such as occupancy provisions, and the potential for a more streamlined permitting process for resort and multifamily properties that are already being managed by HOAs or property management companies. 


The County Commissioners’ review of the draft STR regulations has been continued to a second public hearing, which will take place at 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, November 13,  2018 at the County Courthouse, 208 East Lincoln Ave. in Breckenridge.  At the November 13 meeting, the County Commissioners will continue their review of the draft STR regulations and hear additional public testimony.
