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.

STR Process Update: Meeting materials for the December 18 Public Hearing are posted for review

Posted on December 14, 2018 at 4:16 PM by Dorothy Martinez

Just a reminder that the Board of County Commissioners will continue their review of the draft short-term vacation rental regulations for unincorporated Summit County at a 3rd public hearing on Tuesday, December 18 at 9:00 a.m. at the County Courthouse, located at 208 E. Lincoln Ave. in Breckenridge. At the December 18 meeting, the BOCC will continue reviewing the draft regulations, consider additional public comments, and, if appropriate, make a decision regarding the adoption of the proposed regulations. This meeting will include a public hearing, during which members of the public are invited to provide comment.


The December 18 meeting materials are available for review on the County website at:  The STR materials begin on page 2. 


The staff report discusses key issues that the BOCC directed County staff to further investigate in response to community concerns, including occupancy provisions, considerations for condo-hotels and timeshares / fractional ownership units, and revisions to the process, timeline and fees for STR permitting and annual renewals.   The staff report outlines several recommended revisions to the proposed regulations to address these concerns, and the draft regulations (Attachment 1) have been updated to incorporate these recommended changes, which will be discussed with the BOCC at the December 18 meeting.
