Body
DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND
On August 24, 2021, the Board approved the Introduction (First Reading) of Ordinance 5146 and Continued the matter to August 31, 2021 for Final Passage (Second Reading).

Following discussions of issues arising in some neighborhoods due to a high concentration of Vacation Home Rentals (VHRs), and due to impending Tahoe Regional Planning Agency requirements, the Board of Supervisors directed staff to present options on introducing additional locational criteria into the County’s VHR Ordinance.

At the May 11, 2021 meeting of the Board of Supervisors, the Board directed staff to return to the Board within 90 days with ordinance amendment language to add a clustering policy that will not allow a vacation home rental within 500 feet, measured from property line to property line, of a legally existing vacation home rental.

The proposed Ordinance adds a subsection Sec. 5.56.056. - Vacation Home Rental Clustering, which prohibits approval of a VHR permit for any parcel that is within 500 feet of another parcel with a current vacation home rental permit. If approved, the proposed Ordinance would go into effect 30 days following final passage.

ALTERNATIVES
The Board could choose to retain the current ordinance, direct staff to bring alternate ordinance language, or make additional recommendations.
