Status of Short-Term Renting in Casco Township
Casco Township has been working on the issue of short-term rentals for many months. The Planning Commission proposed and the Board of Trustees passed changes to the Zoning Ordinance that allow both short and long-term rentals in all zoning districts in Casco Township. Those changes will not take effect unless the Township electors vote in favor of those changes at the primary election to be held August 7, 2018.
On January 22, 2018, the Board of Trustees passed a Regulatory Ordinance to establish rules for registration of short-term rentals and penalties for non-compliance. The Regulatory Ordinance is in effect and will be enforced for the 2018 rental season, beginning May 15.
On March 19, 2018, the Board of Trustees passed a Moratorium on Enforcement of the current Zoning Ordinance while waiting for the results of the referendum. This means that for the 2018 rental season, renting will only be regulated in accordance with the Regulatory Ordinance. All dwellings used for short-term rentals must be registered before renting occurs or advertising to rent takes place.
