Woodland Park is looking at possible regulations
Woodland Park has had a study session about Airbnb in May and a community meeting in July.
Woodland Park is looking to see if the tax rate is similar/fair between hotels and Airbnb and also to see if the town character has changed and/or if crime has increased. While we can't speak to if the character of the town has changed, crime has not gone up.
AIRBNB regulations ARE A GOOD THING
We've seen other cities allow for unlimited Airbnb investments only to shortly turn around and change the law. We think that cities should put in sensible Airbnb regulation, which limits individual buyers to 1-3 short-term rental properties.
Woodland Park isn't proposing this at this point, but we do anticipate future Airbnb changes for Woodland Park.
