Do you currently have a Residential or Interim Short Term Rental Permit?

On April 6, City Council passed a law that directly affects existing Residential (RSTR) and Interim (ISTR) Short Term Rental permit holders.

First, this law says that all existing RSTR and ISTR permits will expire on August 31, 2023. No short-term bookings or listings will be allowed after that date. To comply with this law, RSTR and ISTR hosts should close their calendars after this date or be prepared to cancel all bookings after that time if they are unsuccessful in obtaining a Non-Commercial Short Term Rental (NSTR) permit in the first lottery.

Secondly, renewal RSTR permits will be prorated by the Short Term Rental Administration given this expiration date. Because renewal applications are required to be submitted 30 days prior to expiration, renewals of RSTR permits will not be accepted after July 31, 2023.

The prorated RSTR renewal fees are as follows:

April 20 - May 20: 75% fee

RSTR Partial - $187.50
RSTR Small - $375.00

May 21 - June 21: 50% fee

RSTR Partial - $125.00
RSTR Small - $250.00

June 22 - July 31: 25% fee

RSTR Partial - $62.50
RSTR Small - $125.00

If your Reisdential STR permit has an expiration date after February 26, 2020, you are eligible to renew your license. Please submit your STR Operator application via the OneStopApp and email your current floor plan to

If you were denied a Residential STR permit after December 1, 2019 for not having a homestead exemption, you are eligible for an Interim STR permit.

Please email with any questions.

Thank you,

Short Term Rental Administration
