Proposed Short-term Rental Ordinance Released

Clark County today released its draft short-term rental (STR) ordinance as part of a “business impact statement” process required by Nevada law. The drafting of the ordinance was prompted by the passage during the 2021 Legislature of Assembly Bill 363, which mandates that Clark County allow short-term rentals such as Airbnb and VRBO.
