City seeks input on short-term rental accommodation regulations

Vernon_City_Hall

The number of short-term rental (STR) accommodations is on the rise, and the City of Vernon is looking for public input on short-term rental regulations. Public and stakeholder engagement will help inform the development of short-term rental regulations in Vernon.

The planning process was approved by Council in 2019, and is now undergoing the public engagement process. Currently, there are no regulations for short-term rentals in Vernon, which are defined as a home, or a room in a home, that is rented for less than 30 days at a time. An online survey can be found on the Engage Vernon, the City’s public engagement website, and a paper copy is available at the Community Services Building (3001 32nd Avenue) front counter.

The survey is available for feedback from March 13 to April 14, 2020. We encourage you to register at on Engage Vernon where you can complete the survey online and receive updates on the project.

The input gathered during this process will help the City of Vernon prepare short-term rental accommodation regulations, to be presented to Council for consideration. Once drafted, there will be additional opportunities for public review and input.
