Nightly Rental Frequently Asked Questions

Q: If I use a property manager, am I still required to purchase a nightly rental license?

A: Yes, a Nightly Rental License must be obtained for each structure, dwelling, or dwelling unit. But, an additional sales tax license need not be obtained if the Property Manager has already obtained one.


Q: My property is in a Commercial, Commercial Transitional or Resort Zone, am I still required to apply for a Nightly Rental License?

A: Yes, you must apply for a Nightly Rental License regardless of your zoning, including submitting a site plan, but no application fee is required and no notice will be sent out to adjoining property owners. Once you have turned in all applicable documents to Town staff’s satisfaction, a Nightly Rental License will be issued administratively.


Q: What information is required to be submitted on a site plan?

A: A site plan is a sketch that identifies the different improvements on your property (to scale). The site plan that you submit to the Town should address, at a minimum, the following features: Location of home as it relates to the property, including any decks or other features connected to the home, driveway as well as number of parking spaces, snow storage location (1/3 of driveway area) and the garbage dumpster location, as well as the trash company that you’re using and schedule of pick up.


Q: What will the application process entail for a home in a residentially zoned district?

A: Once the application, application fee, site plan and Nightly Rental License fee have been accepted by the Town, Town staff will notify all neighbors within 100’ of your property. If no one objects in writing to the proposed use within 14 days, the license will be granted administratively. If one or more property owners object to this use, the Planning Commission and the Board of Trustees will consider it as a Conditional Use. Namely, each body will have the option of scheduling a Public Hearing/Meeting to consider the proposed use; the Planning Commission will make a recommendation to the Board of Trustees and the Board of Trustees will have three options: approve, approve with conditions or deny.


Q: How do you renew a Nightly Rental License?

A: For Commercial, Commercial Transitional and Resort Districts, the applicant must only repurchase the Nightly Rental License. For all other zoning districts, if no written complaints or citations have been written relating to the specific property within the past year, the applicant must only repurchase the Nightly Rental License. If one or more written complaints or citations have been received during the past 12 months, the applicant must re-apply and the application shall be treated as a Conditional Use as outlined above.
