Public Hearing: Proposed Revisions to Tourist Rooming House Ordinance
The Village adopted the Tourist Rooming House ordinance in 2017 as a means of regulating Tourist Rooming Houses, AKA Short term rentals in the Village. In 2020 the Village made updates to the ordinance to remove provisions that conflict with the State’s right to rent law. The Village has received several requests from residents to conduct a follow-up review of the ordinance.
On Monday, April 3, 2023, the Village held a public information session on the Village’s Tourist Rooming House Ordinance. The Public Safety Committee reviewed comments received from residents and Tourist Rooming House owners/operators and have put together proposed revisions to the ordinance. The Committee’s goal was to balance the concerns of neighbors with the right for property owners to use their property as a Tourist Rooming House.
