Planning Commission to Accept Input on Short-Term Rental Regulations:
The Town of Steilacoom’s regulations on short-term rentals, such as for Bed and Breakfast Inns, were written before the rise of Airbnb, VRBO and other internet-based rental applications. The Planning Commission will begin taking public input on possible new regulations for these types of rentals at their November meeting.
After gathering information from the public, the Commission will make a recommendation to the Town Council on new regulations. You may provide input in person at the Commission meeting, or by submitting comments in writing to Town Planner Doug Fortner at 1030 Roe Street, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Commission will meet November 18 in Town Hall, 1717 Lafayette Street, at 6:30 PM.
