    With the growth of the “sharing economy,” the City is seeing an increase in residents using popular websites like Airbnb and VRBO to offer their homes for short-term rentals.

    Under the City’s current zoning regulations, short-term rentals (rentals for a period of less than one month) are prohibited in residential zones R6, R9, RM-1, RM-2 and RM-3, except where allowed by Special Exception as a Bed and Breakfast.

    In zones where they are permitted, short-term rentals are classified as “Visitor Accommodations” and fall into two categories:
