1 Post Office Box 471 Boulder, Colorado Land Use Department Courthouse Annex th Street 13 th & Spruce Streets Boulder, Colorado (303) February 4, 2008 Re: Short-Term Rental of Residential Homes in Unincorporated Boulder County Dear Boulder County Property Owner, Over the past several months, the Boulder County Land Use Department has been exploring options for revising the current land use code to allow for short-term vacation rentals of privately owned residences in unincorporated Boulder County. Our goal is to be able to approve appropriate short-term vacation rentals by establishing a standard of health, safety and well being for temporary lodgers in our county. In so doing, we intend to minimize the negative impacts on neighborhoods and full-time residents. In all cases, the County will take a balanced approach to finding ways to accommodate property owners and help mitigate the impacts that short-term rentals have on rural and mountain communities and adjacent property owners. Based on direction from the Board of County Commissioners and extensive research and feedback from rental owners, neighbors of rental properties and users of rental properties, our staff has drafted a set of potential options for changing the land use code to minimize the regulatory burden on property owners who want to rent out their homes or cabins on a short-term basis. Our approach is to identify various levels of rental intensity that are likely to have minimal impacts on neighborhoods. Low- and mediumlevel intensity uses might require a minimum level of regulations while high-intensity rentals may be reviewed more thoroughly. As a note, while new regulations are being drafted, the County has issued a stay of enforcement on existing regulations for short-term rentals in unincorporated Boulder County. The County Commissioners are aiming to adopt new regulations this spring after allowing adequate time for public input and discussion. History of home rentals in unincorporated Boulder County Under current land use code regulations for vacation rentals in unincorporated Boulder County (which have not been updated since 1954), home rentals of greater than 90 days to a single set of tenants are allowed by right under the code, but short-term vacation rentals are allowed only if a property owner receives Special Use approval from the Board of County Commissioners. (An exception is any home that has been used as a vacation rental continuously since Such a home may continue to operate without Special Use approval.) The special use review process requires a public hearing before the Planning Commission and a public hearing, and final decision by the Board of County Commissioners. Last year, the County began receiving complaints from county residents about short-term rental activity that was not approved by the County through the currently required process. Many of the complaints came from neighbors of properties that had not been rented out in the past, or that had been rented for longer time periods, but were now being rented out to different groups on a frequent basis, leading to Cindy Domenico County Commissioner Ben Pearlman County Commissioner Will Toor County Commissioner

2 greater levels of neighborhood impact. The complaints generally referenced issues and concerns commonly associated with frequent rental turnover occurring in an established residential neighborhood: increased traffic and noise, over-occupancy, insufficient parking, trespassing, problems with trash removal and negative impacts on wildlife and neighborhood character. Where we re heading Recognizing that the age of the Internet and trends in shorter term vacation stays have significantly changed the dynamic of vacation rentals in rural and mountain communities, it is clear that the current regulations in Boulder County need to be revisited and revised. The main challenge before the County is developing a set of regulations that appropriately address the issue of residential homes being used as lodging (typically, a business use) in residential communities. To address this challenge and the associated concerns around this issue, the County has developed a working definition for a new land use code designation of lodging in a dwelling. In anticipation of drafting regulations around this new designation that will include short-term vacation rentals, the land use staff has researched how other local governments regulate vacation rentals in neighborhoods where individuals and families historically have lived in the homes themselves or have rented them out for continuous, extended periods of time. The results of this research are included with this letter. The public process Our land use staff has been listening to input from all perspectives and has developed a set of options for regulations that address property owners rights along with important health, safety and neighborhood impact issues. The draft regulations take into account levels of rental activity, the appropriate cut-off between short-term and long-term rentals, basic requirements of structures to properly provide safe and healthy occupancy (including permitted and properly functioning septic systems), potential traffic, neighborhood impacts, and County review processes. Starting in March, the County will be holding public meetings to discuss these proposed options and regulations. The dates will be publicized in a news release and posted on the County s Web site when the dates are set. In preparation for these meetings, we ve enclosed information about our research and some potential ways for accommodating lodging uses in residential dwellings. Please contact Abby Janusz at with your thoughts on the proposed regulations. We will be posting this information along with upcoming meeting times on our Web site at: We welcome your input and look forward to hearing from you. Sincerely, Dale Case, AICP Acting Land Use Director

3 Draft Proposed Regulations and Options for Short Term Rentals, or Lodging in a Dwelling Generally speaking, regulations have three separate parts: the intent, the definition, and the regulations. The following discussion explores each of these parts as they apply to potential changes to the Land Use Code. Each of these items will be discussed at upcoming public meetings. We would like to receive your comments and concerns regarding this proposal. 1. Intent: The intent of new regulations for lodging uses is to promote public safety, address neighbor concerns, and ensure compatibility with the surroundings. The County also wants to create a process for property owners which is not burdensome so that vacation rentals can be permitted in appropriate structures and locations without a public hearing before the Board of County Commissioners. 2. Working Definition Lodging in a Dwelling For the past few months, the conversation with staff and property owners has been about cabin rentals and vacation rentals. While these terms are good ways to think about the nature of the rental, it seems that the real issue is lodging uses in residential areas. The Land Use Code has clear distinctions for lodging uses (hotel, motel, camping, etc) and residential uses but short-term lodging within a home is not adequately addressed in the Code. This following proposed definition seeks to bridge the gap between single-family homes and commercial lodging facilities. Proposed Working Definition for a new designation of Lodging in a Dwelling: A dwelling or portion of a dwelling that is rented for any duration of less than 30 days. This includes dwellings where the owner lives on site (such as a bed and breakfast or boarding house), dwellings rented out by individual owners, and dwellings rented out on behalf of an individual owner by a property manager. Dwellings used for lodging terms of longer than 30 days are allowed by right in all districts where dwellings are allowed. 3. Potential Regulations/Options Type of Review Required In thinking about regulations for lodging uses within dwellings, Boulder County Land Use staff thought it might make sense to have standards for less intense lodging uses and more intense lodging uses. The intent is to create a simple process for in-home lodging if the impacts of the use are likely to be minor. More intense uses would require a public hearing (although only one rather than the two currently required). There might be a middle ground where the lodging is permitted by right but with an appeal process. The administrative safety review will be discussed in detail following the intensity discussion. Proposed Types of Review: Less Intense administrative safety review by Land Use Department Medium or Mid-level Intensity administrative safety review, addition criteria to address issues of neighborhood character with a process to appeal the administrative decision More Intense administrative safety review by Land Use Department PLUS Limited Impact Special Review process (1 public hearing before BOCC) Intensity One item to discuss is the definition of intensity. The intent of differentiating between more intense and less intense uses is to define a level of lodging that occurs in residential areas that is limited and reasonable. These less intense uses would not require a public hearing. A less intense use assumes that Regulation Options Page 1 of 4

4 fewer guests would utilize the house as lodging establishment on an annual basis. Intensity could be measured either by total nights rented per year or by number of times rented (rental terms). Defining intensity by rental terms may allow the home to be rented for more nights, but the turnover in renters would be less. Conversely, defining intensity by number of days might allow greater turnover, but the total number of days a home could be rented would be limited. Land Use staff supports limiting the number of people staying within the dwelling to no more than two (2) guests per bedroom, which is the assumption of permitted septic systems by Boulder County Public Health. In addition, perhaps there should be a maximum number of guests regardless of the number of bedrooms. If an exceptionally large house is used for lodging, more people could stay but it would be deemed a more intense use. The more intense use requirements would then apply. Proposed Intensity Options and Definitions Note: these options are not hard and fast they are only a starting point for discussion: Options to Define Less Intense rentals that occur: 14 nights or fewer per year OR 4 rental terms* or fewer per year Two lodgers per bedroom Eight lodgers or fewer per house Options to Define Medium Intense rentals that occur: 15 nights per year or more but 60 nights per year or less OR 5 rental terms* per year or more but fewer than 10 rental terms* Two lodgers per bedroom Eight lodgers or fewer per house Options to Define More Intense rentals that occur: 61 nights per year or more OR more than 11 rental terms* per year Eight or more lodgers per house *A rental term can be compared to a hotel reservation - a separate defined period during which the dwelling is rented to a particular occupant. Administrative Safety Review One of the chief concerns with lodging uses in a dwelling is the safety of lodgers. Staying in someone s home overnight is different than staying in a hotel. There is no on-site staff. Houses are unique and have their own special characteristics. These characteristics may be charming under normal circumstances, but they could be very dangerous in an emergency. Bedroom windows might be painted shut. The locking mechanism on doors may require keys from both the inside and the outside. Some homeowners may not keep fire extinguishers in the house. In order for a dwelling to be used for lodging, it must meet minimum safety standards. This will help protect the lodgers, the structure, and the neighboring property owners from harmful impacts. Some of the items on the safety review checklist will be musts from the Land Use Department perspective (items 1-3, 12 in particular) while other requirements may become options that must be discussed with property owners and neighbors. 1) Permitted onsite wastewater (septic) system 2) Minimum safety standards for a residence: plumbing, electrical, etc. 3) Legal Building Lot, Legal Access from a public road Regulation Options Page 2 of 4

5 4) Smoke alarms in every room 5) Fire Extinguisher in every room 6) Dwellings used for lodging must provide a map clearly indicating the property boundaries and appropriate parking spaces to the lodger 7) Exterior doors must open out 8) Interior door locks must operate without a key 9) Bedroom windows must open 10) Emergency escape ladder in every 2 nd floor bedroom 11) Exit lighting 12) Safety inspection would be required every three years. 13) An annual report filed by the homeowner would be required every year. In addition to basic safety standards, the more intense rentals may require current building standards such as: 14) Each dwelling must be equipped with a minimum 100 amp 3-wire electrical service. The electrical panel must be in a code-conforming location and all branch circuits must be labeled. 15) Electrical receptacles located in the kitchen, bathroom, exterior locations, and unfinished areas must be GFCI protected. 16) The dwelling must be equipped with at least one code-conforming 3'0" X 6'8" exit door with code-conforming landing, steps, handrails, etc. 17) Each sleeping room must have at least 1 code-conforming emergency escape and rescue opening. 18) All heating appliances must meet the requirements of the current Building Code. The safety inspection would be conducted by the Boulder County Building Department. If a property changes ownership, the safety review schedule would not be impacted. New owners could continue to use the dwelling for lodging, and a safety review would not be required until the regularly scheduled threeyear interval. Parking Requirements Parking is typically an issue of concern in residential neighborhoods. A parking standard for lodging uses within a dwelling should respect the residential character of the neighborhood without being onerous. Potential ways parking requirements could be calculated: One off-street space per bedroom (this is the current requirement for overnight lodging) Two spaces per dwelling (this is the current requirement for single family homes) Shared parking agreement for off-site parking On-street parking (if permitted at that location) Additional Review Criteria for Medium Intensities Lodging in a dwelling is probably able to occur in such a way that is appropriate for the neighborhood. However, it may not. Lodging that occurs at this mid-level point could be subject to additional review criteria to address the issues of neighborhood impact. Staff would provide the initial review of the additional criteria. The medium intensity uses would still be required to meet all of the safety requirements. Potential additional criteria to address issues of appropriateness could be: 1. The use will be in harmony with the character of the neighborhood and compatibility with the surrounding area. 2. The use will not result in undue traffic congestion or traffic hazards. 3. The house will be adequately landscaped, buffered, and screened so that impacts on neighboring property owners are mitigated. Regulation Options Page 3 of 4

6 The medium intensity lodging uses would also have an appeal process where the Board of County Commissioners could review the determination of Land Use staff. The appeal process could be crafted similar to the appeal process in Site Plan Review. In all instances, staff thinks that neighboring property owners within 1500 feet and referral agencies should be notified that a lodging use is occurring in a dwelling. The County may consider making applications and/or annual reports available online for public review. Limited Impact Special Review Sec A. of the Land Use Code More intense uses of lodging in a dwelling would require Limited Impact Special Review (LISR). This is a shorter process than the Special Review currently required. The main difference between this process and Special Review is that Special Review requires a public hearing before the Planning Commission in addition to the Board of County Commissioners. A number of land use decisions are made using the special review criteria found in Sec A. of the Land Use Code. Some property owners might be wondering how these criteria would apply to lodging uses. Some of these items are self-explanatory in how they are looked at by staff. Other items may need some clarification in how they might apply to lodging in a dwelling. The eleven LISR requirements and how they might apply to lodging in a dwelling are described below: 1. Will comply with the minimum zoning requirements and all other applicable requirements. The established safety criteria will be used to judge whether or not this criterion has been met. 2. Will be in harmony with the character of the neighborhood and compatible with the surrounding area. Staff will look at the size of the parcel, the location of the house on the parcel, screening, topography, size of the house, the number of guests the owner intends to rent to, and other characteristics of the land and the lodging use it will host. Staff will be looking for evidence that lodging uses could occur without diminishing the residential character of the existing neighborhood. 3. Will be in accordance with the Comprehensive Plan. The Comprehensive Plan generally favors rural character, compatibility of uses and minimizing neighborhood impacts. 4. Will not result in an over-intense use of land or excessive depletion of natural resources. There should be no reason for this criterion to be triggered particularly if the house is already built and being utilized as a house. 5. Will not have a material adverse effect on community capital improvement programs. Shouldn t get triggered. 6. Will not require a level of community facilities and services greater than that which is available. Staff will be looking at availability of fire protection, or other community facilities 7. Will not result in undue traffic congestion. Staff will look at the condition of the roads, the number of potential guests at the home, etc. 8. Will not cause significant air, odor, water, or noise pollution. Staff wouldn t expect this criterion to be triggered, although some neighbors may have comments on this item if a home is currently being used as a vacation rental. 9. Will not require amendment to the Regional Clean Water Plan. This criterion will likely not be triggered. 10. Will be adequately landscaped, buffered, and screened. This is something staff will look at on a site specific basis. 11. Will not otherwise be detrimental to the health, safety, or welfare Safety inspections on a periodic basis should be able to address this criterion. Regulation Options Page 4 of 4

7 Vacation Rentals in Boulder County Research to Consider Introduction The greatest impact on vacation rentals to existing neighborhoods and mountain townsites seems to be the impact of short-term uses. Some vacation rentals may be very old and may not have building permits or onsite wastewater system permits on file. In order to protect the health, safety, and welfare of visitors and residents there is a need to review standards of all structures but particularly those that will be rented on a short-term basis. Boulder County staff researched short-term rental regulations in Colorado and throughout the United States to see how different local governments regulate short-term rental uses. In addition, staff looked at state and federal tax regulations to see how these authorities view short-term rental property. Finally, local insurance agents were contacted to see how the insurance industry treats short-term rentals as compared to long-term rentals and regular homeowners insurance. The conclusions reached are based on this research, current Boulder County regulations, and staff opinions. Definitions The definition of short-term rental varies a little, but the majority of jurisdictions we looked at generally hovered around one month. It is not uncommon for typical long-term rentals to have a oneyear lease that becomes a month-to-month lease at the end of the year if the landlord and tenant agree to continue the lease. Staff speculates that the definition of short-term stems from this common practice. There was some variety, however. Eagle County, Colorado defines short-term rental as anything that is 14 days or less while Summit County, Colorado defines this term as anything less than 6 months. Regulations in Other Colorado Local Governments Many counties and municipalities in Colorado regulate short-term rental uses but the definition, process, and intent vary. Local governments with similar short-term rental markets include the Town of Estes Park, Larimer County, the Town of Grand Lake and Grand County. Town of Estes Park In Estes Park, short-term rentals are defined as durations of less than 30 days. Short-term rentals are permitted in all residential zone districts provided the owner of the property complies with all regulations. Some regulations would not be applicable to unincorporated Boulder County such as obtaining a business license and paying commercial utility rates for water and electricity provided by the town. Estes Park s regulations cap the number of guests permitted per bedroom (2), the total number of guests regardless of bedrooms (8), and the number of cars (3) for a short-term rental. Larimer County Larimer County s vacation rental regulations are referred to as cabins in the Land Use Code, and they are limited to certain zoning districts and geographic areas (generally speaking, the western/mountain portions of the county). Cabins rentals are permitted by right and may be rented for any duration of time. Larimer County has definitions for dwelling, cabin and resort lodge/resort cabins. The main difference between these definitions is that Research Page 1 of 4

8 dwelling, cabin is a single unit while resort cabins are a group of cabins under single management and ownership. Resort lodge/resort cabins require a special review process. Town of Grand Lake Of the four Colorado local governments reviewed here, the Town of Grand Lake seems to have the most extensive regulations for vacation rentals. Grand Lake regulates nightly rentals defined as a dwelling unit that is rented for not more than 30 consecutive days. The term nightly rental does not include hotel, motel, or bed and breakfast establishments. A license from the town is required to operate this type of use. A site plan is required to be submitted with the nightly rental license application, and it must demonstrate that parking, trash storage, and snow storage can be accommodated on the site. If the home is within a homeowners association, the HOA must sign the application. The application must also include a rental manager or local contact person who lives or works within 15 minutes of the town and can be responsible in emergency situations. If the application requirements have been met, all abutting property owners are notified of the application and are provided with the rental manager s contact information. If at least one neighbor objects to the use in writing within a certain time period, the application must proceed through a conditional use process. Grand County Grand County defines resort cabins although the term is more analogous to resort lodge in the Boulder County Land Use Code. The term is defined as, a building or buildings designed for occupancy as a temporary abiding place for individuals who are lodged with or without means and in which there are five (5) or less guest rooms. Temporary means less than thirty (30) days. Grand County allows resort cabins by right in the Accommodations, Tourist, Business and Forestry/Open zone districts. Resort cabins are prohibited in the Residential zone district. Regulations Throughout the United States There are examples of short-term rental regulations throughout the United States. The majority of regulations briefed below are from coastal communities, but they have similar dynamics to Boulder County they are all beautiful places that attract visitors. City of Sandpoint, Idaho Sandpoint is located in the Idaho panhandle and is situated on a large lake and near ski resorts. This destination community defines tourist home as durations of more than 5 days but less than 30 days. Only one rental during a 7-day period is permitted. Owners who intend to use their property as a tourist home must obtain a tourist home license from the city. Properties must be inspected for certain safety standards including smoke detectors, fully functioning bedroom windows, interior doors that lock and unlock without the use of a key, illuminated emergency exit lights, in addition to other features (all listed in the land use regulations). The tourist home license is not transferable to new property owners. The zoning ordinance specifies whether tourist homes are prohibited, conditional, or allowed by right. Monroe County, Florida Monroe County is the southern-most county in Florida and encompasses the Florida Keys. Monroe County requires property owners to obtain an annual special vacation rental permit Research Page 2 of 4

9 before they rent their dwellings for 28 days or less. The Monroe County, Florida ordinance is thorough it regulates the number of vehicles including watercraft and trailers, the number of required trash containers, when the trash containers must be removed from the street following pick-up, and quiet hours that must be observed. All dwellings are required to have a designated rental manager and units must be compliant with the State of Florida requirements for wastewater treatment and disposal. Contact information of the rental manager, county code enforcement, and the vacation permit number must be posted on the property and visible from the front property line. This ordinance recently survived a class action lawsuit brought by property owners. 1 Pismo Beach, California The Pismo Beach Planning Commission is currently working with the City Council to discuss disallowing vacation rentals in residential neighborhoods. 2 Vacation rentals are already illegal in residentially zoned areas of the city, but the ban is enforced only by complaint, which normally has to come from a neighbor. That isn t sitting well with the public or the commissioners. The Planning Commission and City Council are expected to hold the joint public meeting before the end of 2007 to hammer out the specifics for a new ordinance. State of North Carolina North Carolina has statewide legislation that governs vacation rentals generally defined as a rental of a privately owned residence for less than 90 days. The statute include required verbiage to be included in all rental contracts, an expedited eviction process if certain conditions are met, and some minimum safety standards such as complying with all applicable building codes, keeping the property in a safe condition, a providing operable smoke detectors (including replacing batteries annually). The Vacation Rental Act also requires all renters of vacation units to follow all mandatory evacuation orders. Colorado Taxes The State of Colorado defines short-term rentals as anything rented in increments of less than 30 days. All short-term rentals in Colorado are required to remit sales taxes. See for additional information. Some counties collect lodging tax as well, although Boulder County is not one of them. Federal Taxes Property owners do not need to report any rental income from a dwelling unit if they rent it out for less than 15 days per year. A dwelling unit includes a house, apartment, condo, mobile home, boat, vacation home, or similar property. It has basic living accommodations, such as sleeping space, a toilet, and cooking facilities. "Dwelling unit" does NOT encompass property used solely as a hotel, motel, inn, or similar establishment (i.e., the owner never uses it as a home during the year). Of course, these owners who run a business of renting out cabins throughout the year do interest the IRS. Rental receipts are reportable as income and the available deductions are affected as well. Owners who rent out part of their property must divide certain expenses between the part used for rental purposes and the part used for personal purposes, as though they actually had two separate pieces of property, to determine allowable deductions. 1 Neumont v. State, 2007 WL (Fla. 2007). 2 April Charlton, Residential homes, vacation rentals don't mix, Pismo Beach planners say, SANTA MARIA TIMES, Sept. 17, Research Page 3 of 4

10 I.R.S. Publication 527, Residential Rental Property (Including Rental of Vacation Homes), available at includes useful information regarding federal income taxes. Homeowners Insurance Several local insurance agents with three different national companies were contacted during the course of this research. Boulder County staff was interested in learning how insurance companies view short-term rentals as opposed to long-term rentals (typically annual leases of unfurnished dwelling units), and the difference between a vacation home for personal use versus a vacation home that is rented out to non-family members. Conclusions Many local governments in Colorado and throughout the United States regulate shortterm/vacation rentals. The Special Use process currently required for short-term rentals in Boulder County is onerous for single rental unit. There is a need for a short-term rental process that is simple for people to apply and simple for the county to administer and enforce. Research Page 4 of 4
