Klickitat County is working on developing code to legalize short-term rentals in unincorporated areas. County Commission Chair Dan Christopher says STR’s have never actually been legalized in the County, even though they estimate about 490 are currently in operation outside of incorporated cities…but they don’t know where they area. Christopher says they aren’t looking at limits on STR’s at this point, noting they need to actually know how many there are before moving in that direction. Christopher says the STR’s will be required to be in a properly permitted residential structure and have a 14-foot wide driveway for emergency vehicle access. Public hearings will be held on the subject.
