Post-public feedback, Albemarle weighs transient lodging rule changes
The Daily Progress Sunday, October 29, 2017 at noon
After seeking public input, Albemarle County staff is recommending changes to current regulations for short-term rentals such as Airbnb.
Currently, the zoning ordinance allows residents in both the rural area and the development area to rent out as many as five rooms in a single-family detached structure as a short-term rental if the owner or a manager is present on site and other inspections are passed. The county currently does not allow transient lodging in townhouses, other single-family attached residences or apartments.
Residents in the rural area also can rent out as many as five rooms in an additional structure on the parcel, for a total of 10 rooms.
