Silverthorne & Frisco Discuss Short-Term Rental Regulations

Debbie Nelson



The Town of Silverthorne will host 3 Open Houses on Monday, Sept. 12 to get feedback from the Public on a proposal to cap STR's at 10% in most neighborhoods around Town. The other areas in the Town Core and along the river will be capped at 50%. This proposal will allow 400 additional STR permits.

Please plan to attend an Open House on Monday to give your input! There is also a short survey you can take.

The Town of Frisco will have an update on an ordinance to cap short-term rentals at 22%. The staff recommends the ordinance change from a 22% cap to 25% due to a Court of Appeals ruling in New Orleans. The Town previously wanted an exempt status for local homeowners to be able to rent out their properties when they go on vacation.   The Court of Appeals in New Orleans struck down a similar ordinance in August. Staff also suggests that Tuesday night's first reading and vote on the ordinance be tabled. The Town currently has 20% STR's. 

The Town has made it clear they would like to hear from all affected communities. Please plan to attend the Council Meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 13, at 7:00 pm.

Attached are the staff memo and the Court of Appeals ruling. Below is an article to the New Orleans ruling:
