Truckee Short Term Rental Ordinance Survey

The Town of Truckee is considering updates to the community's Short-Term Rental (STR) Ordinance, and they want to hear from you!

Affordable housing continues to be a challenge for many within our regional workforce. In an effort to address this crisis, the Town of Truckee has proposed changes to the STR Ordinance.

The updates that are being considered include the following three recommendations to the ordinance:

  • A cap on the number of STR registration certificates issued
  • The creation of a waiting period after a property sells before they can be eligible as an STR
  • The phasing out of STRs in multi-family housing units

The Town of Truckee formed a stakeholder advisory committee to study Short Term Rental management options and to provide recommendations.

The committee is made up of a broad range of stakeholders who met over a three month period to consider this complex issue. By proactively managing the STR registration program, they hoped to create a solution to the affordable housing issue.

Their study involved looking at the makeup of the current STR inventory in Truckee. They also looked at tools used in similar destination communities. Finally, they reviewed the findings from a literature review that looked at several academic studies on these potential tools and their impacts on the housing market. It is from this process that the three recommendations above were made.

As the recommendations that are currently being considered, you have the opportunity to share your input. They are seeking public input and community involvement in this important decision. The survey will be available from January 14, 2022 until January 24, 2022. The information received will then be presented to the Truckee Town Council at the February 8, 2022 Truckee Town Council meeting.
