September 17 Virtual Open House: DC-19-0005 Short-term Dwelling Rental and Bed & Breakfast

Attend a Virtual Open House starting at 6 p.m. on Thursday, September 17, 2020


Boulder County, CO - The Boulder County Community Planning & Permitting Department is continuing work on Land Use Code updates to Short-term Dwelling Rental and Bed & Breakfast regulations in Docket DC-19-0005.

After receiving input from the public, reviewing neighboring jurisdictions’ regulations and additional research, staff has drafted proposed Text Amendments to Article 4 of the Boulder County Land Use Code along with a proposed Licensing Ordinance to regulate Short-Term Rentals and Bed & Breakfast uses.

The public is invited to attend a virtual open house starting at 6 p.m. on Thursday, September 17, 2020.

Virtual Open House - Thursday, September 17 at 6 p.m.

  • What: Virtual Open House to review and discuss the draft proposals.
  • When: 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 17, 2020
  • Where: Register to participate in this virtual open house to learn more about the proposed changes and drafts, and provide input to staff.

The proposed changes are for the unincorporated areas of Boulder County, not in cities like Boulder or Longmont. Boulder County’s unincorporated areas comprise the rural, mountainous and plains communities that are not a part of any incorporated municipality.

The timeline for this update is to provide proposed draft regulations to the Boulder County Planning Commission in the fall. Written comments may be submitted online.
