The Mayor and Council will hold a second public hearing virtually, Monday, Jan. 11, to gather input on whether to develop recommendations to regulate short-term residential rentals in Rockville.
A short-term rental is when a dwelling a unit, or part of a dwelling unit, is rented for a short period of time, usually fewer than 30 days. Most short-term residential rentals are coordinated through third-party companies such as Airbnb, Priceline and Expedia.
While short-term rentals take place in the city, no laws currently govern the practice.
At their Nov. 9 public hearing, the Mayor and Council requested a second hearing to collect the community’s thoughts and opinions on short-term rentals prior to any recommendation for the development of regulations.
For more information, see the staff report in the Nov. 9 agenda.
