Welcome to the conversation about short-term rentals in the City of Vernon. A short-term rental (STR) is a home, or a room in a home, that is rented for less than 30 days at a time. For example, rented on a daily, weekend, weekly or bi-weekly basis to visitors who return to primary residence elsewhere at the end of their stay.
The number of short-term rental (STR) accommodations is on the rise in Vernon. The purpose of this consultation is to explore the local issues related to short-term rentals and to determine how to move forward and regulate short-term rentals in Vernon.
The planning process was approved by Council in 2019, and is now undergoing the public engagement process. Survey responses will be collected from March 13 to May 31, 2020. There will also be stakeholder engagement and open houses to provide additional opportunities for public review and input.
