On Monday, December 19, 2021, the County finalized its new Short Term Rental Regulations. Most, but not all, property owners will be able to get a license under the new system.
Be sure to read through all of the license types and zoning to understand the policies and how your clients can qualify for permits. If you have questions on a specific property under the County Jurisdiction, please contact Jessica Potter, Senior Planner. Jessica.Potter@SummitCountyCO.gov or 970-668-2968.

The Town of Fairplay passed a short-term rental ordinance on March 18th. There is a 30-day period of effectiveness following the publication for the ordinance before it goes into effect. The link to the ordinance is below.
From the Fairplay Town Administrator Janell Sciacca: The short-term rental moratorium is still in effect through the end of April. The Board will be considering another Emergency Ordinance on April 18, 2022 to set the exact date of expiration which will coincide with the effectiveness of the ordinance. I am anticipating that the Town will begin accepting applications around the first part of May and there will only be a total of 20 licenses available. Preference for the initial licenses is being given to the current rental properties that have been operating under a regular business license. There were 14 of those, but we do not know if all of them will apply for the STR license. As an extra point of clarification, the ordinance limits units to 1 per natural person or entity.
This ordinance applies only to the Town of Fairplay. It does not include Park County (such as Valley of the Sun or Placer Valley) or the Town of Alma.
Please reach out to the Town of Fairplay if you have any questions about specific properties.
