Newport, Oregon Moves Forward on Vacation Rental Ordinance Improvements

After several months of discussions the small city of Newport, Oregon will consider a final draft of amendments to its vacation rental laws.

The proposed amendments create clear and objective criteria to allow vacation rentals and bed and breakfast facilities in all residential zones.  They would also continue to be permitted in commercial zone districts.  The criteria are tailored to achieve the purpose of the regulations, which has been clarified to “ensure the safety and convenience of renters, owners and neighboring property owners; protect the character of residential neighborhoods; and addressing potential negative effects such as excessive noise, overcrowding, illegal parking, and accumulation of refuse.
