Like others in Door County, the Town of Liberty Grove is taking a look at its zoning concerns when it comes to short-term lodging rentals. The Town of Liberty Grove Board and its plan commission hosted Bruce McCaskill from Granicus on Wednesday. The digital government solutions company would help the town monitor the homes being used for short-term rentals, some of which are not located in commercial areas. It is also causing concern for nearby residents who are worried about noise and possible groundwater implications. Town chairperson John Lowry says it is becoming a growing issue across the area and around the country.
The town’s plan commission is working on an ordinance addressing the issue and it could be ready by the end of the month. The Village of Sister Bay and the Town of Sevastopol have also taken up the issue of short-term rental regulations over the last few months.
