You’ll be allowed to lease your town of Sevastopol Short-Term-Rental to just one group in a six-day period according to the town of Sevastopol’s new STR ordinance. This provision goes into effect on July 1st of 2022 in an effort to give STR owners and marketing platforms time to adjust to it. The Sevastopol Town Board briefly discussed the proposal for a new short-term ordinance that had been mulled over for the past couple of years on Monday and unanimously approved it. Aside from the 6-day provision itself, the ordinance will now be effective on November 1st of this year.
An essential change that the Plan Commission made to the originally drafted ordinance is decreasing the registration fee for STR owners from $500 to $300, with a $250 renewal fee. Town Board Supervisor Linda Wait says it is a relief to have this issue over with for now.
Wait is hopeful that the ordinance will bring stability for neighborhoods where STR’s are located. She also says that the town of Sevastopol website will soon have information for you to better understand all of the STR stipulations including forms. There’s about 80 STR’s in Sevastopol.
