An update to the Larimer County Land Use Code covering current short-term rental regulations in unincorporated Larimer County has begun.

The six to eight-month update will align the code with the changes and expansions in the home-sharing and rental markets to address community concerns about neighborhood impacts and the compatibility of those properties.

County-wide community input from Larimer County residents is needed including those living in the Estes Valley, to ensure a comprehensive update.

Community members can share short-term rental comments, feedback, and ideas through an online questionnaire until Aug. 28 by visiting the Larimer County Short-Term Rental Questionnaire.

Two additional events are also scheduled to gather more input from the community:

A preliminary draft of the updated regulations will be available for review in September, with later public meetings in the fall to hear comments on the draft.

Short-term rentals provide both advantages and challenges in communities. While short-term rentals provide increased revenues and options for visitors and owners, communities have become concerned with traffic, noise, commercial activity in neighborhoods, and fire safety associated with short-term rentals. The Board of Larimer County Commissioners has identified the loss of affordable housing as a priority.
