The extension of the moratorium is set to expire three (3) months after adoption by City Council, which will be June 7, 2017.
Subsequent to the extension of the moratorium; the Salida Planning Commission and City Council have woked to establish new regulations for Short-Term Rental housing within the City of Salida. On April 18, 2017, the City Council adopted new regulations for Short-Term rental housing within the City of Salida. Said regulations will become effective on May 21, 2017, prior to the expiration of the moratorium.
When the moratorium on issuing licenses to Short-Term Rental housing expires, the new regulations will allow for a limited number of additional licenses to be issued based upon specific calculations prescribed by the newly adopted regulations.
