Avon proposes new short-term rental rule

Vail Daily staff report
Avon, CO Colorado

AVON, Colorado – The town of Avon is proposing special reviews when owners want to rent downtown residential properties short term.

Last week, the Town Council voted against allowing such rentals. The new law proposes allowing owners to apply for short-term rental permits on a case-by-case basis.

The proposed criteria for review of short term rentals includes:

• Letter of recommendation from an owner’s association, if applicable.

• Public hearing and noticing of all property owners within the required area for noticing.

• Covenants, restrictions and/or declarations for an owner’s association governing the property which restrict short term rentals.

• Adequacy of parking plan.

• Compliance with the Avon Comprehensive Plan and general considerations for special review use applications.

The Town Council will review the new ordinance as its Sept. 22 meeting at 5:30 p.m. at the Avon Town Hall, located at One Lake Street, Avon, Colorado. The proposed ordinance is available for viewing and comments online at http://www.avon.org/shorttermrentals.

Comments may be submitted online at http://www.avon.org/shorttermrentals, e-mailed to blawlor@avon.org, mailed to The town of Avon, c/o Becky Lawlor, PO Box 975, Avon, CO 81620 or faxed to 970-748-4078.
