Application No. ZT-194-22, York County Planning Commission: Consider amendments to Section 24.1-409 of the York County Zoning Ordinance, Standards for Short-Term Rentals (Boarding Houses, Tourist Home and Bed and Breakfast Establishments). The proposed amendments would require the owner/operators of short-term rentals (STRs) to maintain guest logs; authorize the Board of Supervisors to limit the number of rental nights per year when approving an STR; clarify that tourist home owner/proprietors must reside either in the home or in an adjacent premises while rentals are taking place but authorizing the Board of Supervisors, in approving an application for a tourist home, to waive this requirement when certain requirements are met and the owner/proprietor designates a responsible party to promptly resolve problems that arise while rentals are taking place; revise the criteria for evaluating proposed STRs to include proposed provisions for monitoring the operation of the STR as well as the number, percentage, and/or density of legal STRs in the same subdivision or general area, their proximity to the proposed STR, and the cumulative impact of STRs on the surrounding area; require exterior cooking appliances used by guests to have a fuel source of either propane or natural gas; and stipulate that Special Use Permits and YVA approvals for tourist homes run with the property owner and not with the land.  Staff report and attachments.  For more information contact Timothy C. Cross, AICP, Deputy Director of Planning and Development Services
