Clark County has established the process by which short-term rentals in unincorporated Clark County will be licensed as commercial businesses, as required by the Nevada Legislature in Assembly Bill 363 (AB 363) from the 2021 Session. AB 363 required that Clark County establish to adopt an ordinance regulating short-term rentals and accommodation facilitators such as Airbnb and Expedia (vrbo). AB 363 required and set the baseline for several components of a county ordinance including distance requirements between homes, fees, and penalties.
The Clark County ordinance to reflect this process was approved by the Board of County Commissioners on June 21, 2022, after a six-month process to understand the requirements of AB 363 while engaging the community on the path to license short-term rentals in the unincorporated areas of our region. A survey was conducted and the results of that survey helped to inform how certain parts of Clark County’s ordinance were drafted. The results of that survey can be viewed below. The ordinance strikes a balance between the requirements of AB 363, community feedback, and engagement by the accommodation facilitators.
More information will be available soon about the process for the public to become licensed as a short-term rental business.
