City seeks input on potential regulations for short-term rentals

The issue of regulating short-term rentals is of increasing interest to local governments across the country. This is true in the Front Range and the City of Westminster. Short-term rental generally means the rental of all or a portion of a property for less than 30 days. These rentals are generally listed on websites such as Airbnb or HomeAway.  

The city is interested in examining how to potentially implement simple, sensible and enforceable local policies that balance the rights of homeowners with the interests of neighbors, community members and businesses. City staff will be preparing research and recommendations on potential short-term rental regulations to present to the city’s Planning Commission and City Council. The goal is to achieve direction on policy goals/objectives regarding short-term rentals and identify regulatory requirements that can be effectively enforced.

The city’s short-term rentals page has information and updates on this effort.

The city is interested in your input and suggestions on goals and considerations as the city evaluates instituting short-term rental regulations. Please take a short-term rentals survey by Thursday, May 2 to provide comments. The survey takes an average of three minutes to complete. 

You can also provide your feedback directly to Operations and Community Preservation Manager Aric Otzelberger at aotzelbe@cityofwestminster.us or 303-658-2122.
