  • Step 1: Review all your original application materials and locate your current Short-Term Rental License number. You will need your current license number to move on with the renewal process. If you are unable to locate your license number, contact the Planning and Zoning Department.
  • Step 2: Update any documents with new or changed information.  This may include changes to the structure of your home or an updated septic report (remember, the license requirements need you to check your septic every 3 years).
  • Step 3: Attach the requested documentation in the Short-term Rental Application Portal, being sure to include any updated documents. The requested documents are the same as the initial license application.
