As more homes were converted to STRs and more visitors were staying in these properties, city officials became concerned about the impact they would have on the area’s residents and resources. This concern prompted us to search for a solution linking management of these properties to the City of HSB, ultimately adding continuity and a means of communication.
At the December 10, 2023 City Council Workshop, staff presented an update on the progress of the Short-Term Rental Ordinance in HSB. The Council adopted Article 4.08 Short-Term Rentals, and the Host Compliance Service setup at the January 17 Council meeting. In summary, the ordinance states that all STRs require a permit. Guests must comply with city codes and the operator, or a designated agent, must be available to respond to complaints within one hour.
