Reno, Nev. Aug. 7, 2019. The Washoe County Community Services Department is hosting two public workshops to gather input on short-term rentals within unincorporated Washoe County*. Short-term rentals are generally operated out of private residences such as homes, apartments and condos. They are commonly made available through property management companies and online booking services such as Airbnb and VRBO.

Washoe County will offer workshops in both Reno and Incline Village:

Public Workshop #1:

What: Public workshop on short-term rentals in unincorporated Washoe County

When: Tuesday, Aug. 20, 2019 at 5:30 p.m.

Public Workshop #2:

What: Public workshop on short-term rentals in unincorporated Washoe County

To ensure adequate space and materials for workshop attendees, please RSVP online.

Workshop topics for discussion will include: short-term rental permitting requirements, fire and guest safety, and possible impacts to quality of life such as parking, trash, or noise.

Washoe County invites those with interest in this topic to participate and provide input. Public input will be used to assist County staff in their efforts to establish simple, fair and enforceable standards for short-term rentals. Information gathered at these workshops will be used to draft approaches for consideration by the Board of County Commissioners.
