All Colorado Springs Airbnb investors should take note of some recent action before the Colorado Springs Planning Commission
Earlier this month, the commission voted 3-3 on the proposed Airbnb/short-term rental ordinance. The three 'yes' votes wanted to pass it as written. The three 'no' votes wanted to create a kind of primary residence rule, as we see with Denver's Airbnb law.
The ordinance will now go to the full city council for discussion and a vote.
The current language of the Colorado Springs ordinance ties the number of short-term rentals allowed per property to the zoning designation. For instance, properties zoned:
R-1 (One family residential) can house one short-term rental.
R-2 (two-family residential) can operate up to two Airbnb/short-term rental units.
R-4 (multi-family residential) can operate up to four short-term rentals.
It will be up to the city council to decide whether to retain the current language or to revise it.
