Newport Short-Term Rental Ordinance Amendments

4-23-19

The information listed below relates to potential amendments to City of Newport regulations for vacation rentals (i.e. short-term rentals). It is the product of more than a year's worth of work by an "Ad-Hoc Work Group" formed by the Newport Planning Commission to assess how the existing rules could be improved, followed by a series of hearings by the Planning Commission.

There were a number of key policy areas where the Ad-Hoc Work Group could not reach consensus. They are framed as policy alternatives in the draft Ordinance No. 2144 code amendments, and the Planning Commission narrowed these down to a set of preferred alternatives after taking public testimony. The City Council will now hold one or more public hearings before an ordinance is adopted.

This web page will be updated regularly as new information becomes available, including testimony that is submitted as part of the public hearings process.
