Hood River County Commissioners moved a step closer to approving a short-term rental ordinance, making decisions on some outstanding questions that will lead to a draft ordinance coming before them for approval next month. Most notable is a limit of 25 short-term vacation home rentals on lands zoned exclusive farm use. Commission Chair Ron Rivers says even those will require a comprehensive conditional use process. STR’s would be allowed in other zones, and there would be residency requirements similar to those used by the City. County Planning Director John Roberts pointed out in the urban growth area outside of the city limits, the County would enforce City ordinances. The ordinance will come before the Commission for a vote on October 17.
