Vacation rentals, timber harvesting focus of Feb. 6 Kingston meeting1/29/2019

​Short-term vacation rentals, such as those found on popular listing sites including airbnb.com, are the focus of new policy to be developed for unincorporated areas of Kitsap County. County staff will review the benefits and impacts of short-term vacation rentals on our communities and neighborhoods at the Feb. 6 meeting of the Kingston Citizens Advisory Council meeting, which begins at 7 p.m. in the Village Green Community Center, 26159 Dulay Road NE, Kingston. The presentation starts at 7:30 p.m. Everyone is welcome.

Input gathered on vacation rentals will inform new policies that protect customers, uphold building safety and prevent adverse community impacts. A public survey remains open through Feb. 28 where citizens are asked to share their thoughts on short-term vacation rentals.
