[ARCHIVED] Public Information Meeting on Short-Term Residential Rentals Scheduled for February 22

Loudoun County will hold a virtual public information meeting Tuesday, February 22, 2022, at 6:30 p.m. to present a proposed Zoning Ordinance Amendment (ZOAM) related to short-term residential rentals. 

A short-term residential rental is the provision of a room or space that is suitable or intended for occupancy for dwelling, sleeping or lodging purposes, for a period of fewer than 30 consecutive days, in exchange for a charge for the occupancy. 

In 2018, Loudoun County established a short-term residential rental registration ordinance intended to help the county monitor and evaluate the growing industry of short-term residential rentals. The registry established by the ordinance created a channel for the county to provide operators of short-term residential rentals with important business-related information and resources. 

Following the adoption of the registration ordinance, the county began evaluating public safety and land use/zoning issues associated with short-term residential rentals, with an eye toward amending the county’s Zoning Ordinance to adopt standards for such rentals. This process resulted in a proposed ZOAM that includes separate standards for the short-term rental of an owner-occupied residence, which would be an “accessory use,” and for the rental of a non-owner-occupied dwelling, which would constitute a principal “whole-house commercial use.” 

The public is invited to learn more about these standards and provide input on the draft amendment, which can be previewed at

County staff will be revising the draft text based upon the comments they receive. The ZOAM regarding short-term residential rentals is scheduled to come before the Planning Commission and the Board of Supervisors for public hearings beginning in mid-2022.
