Short Term Rental Permits

STR List 5/2024

The Board of Trustees adopted Ordinance No. 4, Series of 2022, on March 21, 2022. Ordinance No. 4 sets forth the rules and regulations for permitting of Short Term Rental (VRBO) units within the Town limits of Fairplay, Colorado and limits the total number of permits available to 6.5% of the available housing units in Town at the time of adoption of the Ordinance.  That calculation is 20 total permits.

The Town is currently accepting applications and you may obtain the Short Term Rental Permit Application below. Once all licenses have been granted, no additional licenses will be available until a license is revoked, surrendered or not renewed or once the total number of permits available increases when additional housing units are realized.

As of February, 2024, 15 licenses have been issued and 5 remain available. All licenses are issued on a first-come, first-served basis, and only complete applications are accepted.  There is no waiting list and applications must be made by the property owner who can provide proof of ownership.
