County Launches Short Term Rentals Program, Website
Asks Property Owners to Get Permits by Sept. 1st
Aug. 24, 2018 - Clear Creek County Communications, Colo. – With the rising demand for lodging and increased population and tourist growth in Colorado, Clear Creek County is no exception to the trend in short term rentals (STRs). To meet those needs and stay ahead of the growth, the County recently launched a website where County property owners can get annual permits, pay application fees, complete forms and comply with new regulations that apply to those STRs in unincorporated Clear Creek County. Property owners were sent letters notifying them of the new regulations several weeks ago, and more information is found here:
Short term rentals are nightly or weekly rentals (excluding motels and hotels), that typically rent for less than 30 consecutive days. While some of the municipalities have had their own STR programs, the County just recently adopted its own to help with compliance, health and safety, as well as minimize the impacts STRs have on neighbors and neighborhoods.
“While people have been renting out their homes or rooms for years, we haven’t had the ability to ensure they stay safe, in compliance with County restrictions, and provide a good service to visitors in our County,” said Fred Rollenhagen, County Community Development Director. This new website allows property owners to complete the entire process online—including paying application fees and registering their properties.
“We encourage owners who have STRs to register online, and help their County assure a high quality and safe short term rental experience to our visitors, and help minimize impacts to neighbors,” said Rollenhagen.
