Short-Term rental time limit extended from 30 to 90 days

Short-Term rental time limit extended from 30 to 90 days

Do longer occupancy restrictions mean more housing for Jackson’s workforce? 

The town of Jackson Planning commission approved the extension of the short-term rental limit from 30 days to 90 days. This means that a rental of less than 90 consecutive days or three consecutive months will be considered a lodging use, which will be subject to the residential housing regulations. In turn, a homeowner outside of the lodging overlay would not be able to rent their home for less than a 90-day period.  

Due to the increased cost of living and homes being bought for short-term rental use, many members of the community have left, causing a 30% increase in short-term rentals in the past year. The extension of the minimum occupancy period will greatly reduce the number of short-term rentals outside of the lodging overlay. We are hopeful that this change will convince owners to rent their homes to the workforce or long-term residents. This change is a step toward more stable housing in the Town of Jackson.
