Short Term Rental Staff Taskforce
The Short Term Rental Staff Taskforce was established in December 2016. The intent of the Short Term Rental Staff Taskforce is to discuss and address the issues related to Short Term Rentals from a variety of disciplines. The Taskforce includes staff from the following departments and divisions: BSO, Fire Prevention, City Attorney, City Management, Planning and Zoning, Building Inspections, Business Tax Receipt, Code Compliance, Public Works, and CRA.
Administrative Memorandum No. 17-065 lists the short term and long term goals of the Taskforce
The taskforce held Resident meetings on 02/16/2017 and 03/30/2017 and presentation.
As a result of the Taskforce, two Ordinances are currently being processed:
- Proposed 9-month Moratorium on the Conversion of Apartment Buildings to Short Term Rentals (1st City Commission reading – 04/11/2017)
- Proposed Short Term Rental Permit (1st City Commission reading – 04/25/2017)
On April 11 2017, the City Commission approved the first reading of an ordinance to establish a moratorium upon the acceptance of applications and the issuance of zoning use certificates, business tax receipts and of all development orders and permits, as defined in Section 163.3164, Florida Statutes, (collectively Development Orders), approving any and all conversions of multi-family apartment buildings with five or more units to short-term rentals.
The second reading will take place on April 25th 2017. The proposed ordinance is available here.
