Next meeting of Denver's Airbnb advisory committee set for November

A city committee is deciding how to enforce Denver's new Airbnb law.

The panel overseeing the implementation of Denver's new Airbnb law will meet in late November.

The Short Term Rental Advisory Committee is scheduled to meet:

4 p.m., Nov. 29

Room 389

City and County Building

In June, the Denver City Council passed an ordinance bringing into the light thousands of Denver Airbnb rentals. Among other provisions, the new law requires hosts obtain a $25 license and pay 10.75 percent lodger's tax.

The biggest change implemented by the council was to outlaw renting of a second home or investment property. The so-called primary residence rule will wipe out a good portion of the short term rentals (STRs) in Denver.

I'll update this post with an agenda as soon as the committee releases it.

At last month's advisory committee meeting, an official with Denver excise and licenses' division said that they will dedicate two inspectors to compliance with the new law.

Enforcement of the new regulation has always been a question. Cities like Portland and San Francisco that have passed similar measures have met with resistance. In Portland, for instance, less than 25 percent of hosts on Airbnb have applied for a license.
