Public meetings this week address impacts of vacation rentals1/3/2019

Short-term vacation rentals, such as those found on popular listing sites including airbnb.com, are the focus of policy being developed for unincorporated areas of Kitsap County. Staff from the Commissioners' Office will attend public meetings in Suquamish and Manchester this week to kick off outreach, review current code and gather input on existing issues and amenities related to short-term vacation rentals.

Presentations will be given at the Suquamish Citizens Advisory Committee meeting, which begins at 6 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 3 in the Suquamish Tribal Council Chambers, 18490 Suquamish Way NE; and at the Manchester Citizens Advisory Committee meeting, which begins at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 3 in the Manchester Library, 8067 East Main Street.

Other public meetings will be scheduled this winter and announced at a later date. A survey will be circulated broadly throughout the county to gather further input. For more information on short-term vacation rental policy development and public outreach, visit the project website or contact Eric Baker in the Commissioners' Office at (360) 337-4495, ebaker@co.kitsap.wa.us.
