No short-term rentals in downtown Avon

AVON, Colorado – Short-term rentals still aren’t allowed in much of Avon.

Town Council on Tuesday voted down a plan to allow short-term rentals in a large swath of town.

It would have applied to downtown Avon between Interstate 70 and U.S. Highway 6, Mayor Ron Wolfe said. It would not have applied to Wildridge, Nottingham Road or Mountain Star, he said. Short-term rentals span 30 days or fewer, he said.

Presently, short-term rentals are not allowed in the downtown, except in a few cases where town officials OK’d them as part of the approval process for the development.

Council voted down the plan in a 3–4 vote, with Wolfe, Richard Carroll, Brian Sipes and Buz Reynolds casting the “no” votes.

Next, council will consider a selec-tive approval process for short-term rentals, Wolfe said. Rules may require a majority of homeowners in a com-plex to agree on allowing short-term rentals, he said. If the homeowners agree, they would petition the town for approval, Wolfe said.

The issue might come up again as early as the next council meeting, or it could come in October or November, Wolfe said.
