No New Vacation Rental Permits Until July
By Hayley Day, San Juan Update
The San Juan County Council approved a six-month moratorium on vacation rental permits from Jan. 13 through July 13.
The resolution states that “while this moratorium is in effect, no new applications for a vacation rental permit shall be accepted as complete by any county department, and no currently pending incomplete application shall be accepted as complete by any county department.”
Vacation rentals can “have significant impacts on the community,” according to the resolution.
The resolution states that the “San Juan County Council desires to receive input from the community, recommendations from the planning commission and a proposed work plan from the department of community development, and develop additional regulations for vacation rentals.”
A public hearing on the moratorium will be held by the county council at 9:15 a.m., Feb. 23.
