A VHR is a property that is rented for 30 days or less.
A VHR permit is required for all properties meeting the definition of a VHR. However, there are three types of VHR permits based on operations and property location. You may obtain an over-the-counter permit or may be required to go through a public hearing process. During the public hearing process, neighbors located within 300 feet of the proposed rental location will be notified, a public hearing will be held, and a decision-making entity will either approve, approve with additional conditions, or deny a VHR application. Below are the three types of VHR permits.
VHRs located in a Commercial/Tourist Core Area
VHRs located in a Residential Area, in which the owner does not occupy at the time of rental
Shared VHRs located in a Residential Area
