Photo by Kenny Trenton /93.5 Moose FM /Vista Radio Highlands East is looking for your thoughts on short-term rentals. The municipality has put together a draft questionnaire. “Short-term rental” or “short-term accommodation” typically describes places that are rented out for lengths of time such as less than 30 days for monetary gain. That can take a few different forms, such as someone who rents their place out while they are on vacation, to owners who rent on a continually rotating basis. While traditional Bed and Breakfasts are recognized through the Comprehensive Zoning Bylaw 2005-29, they’re characterized by the caretaker being on-site, and limited to three guest rooms. Council is asking residents to give their feedback on whether or not some form of regulation on short-term rentals is needed. You can take a look at the draft questionnaire at the municipality’s website and suggest questions you think should be added to it. Input can be sent to Robyn Rogers up to 4:30pm on April 30th. You can email it to email@example.com or mail it to: Robyn Rogers, Clerk Box 295 Wilberforce, ON, K0L 3C0 The municipality says the final questionnaire will be presented to the public either in the late spring or early summer.
