Douglas County Temporarily Suspends Issuance of New Vacation Home Rental PermitsStateline-Nev. – On February 18, 2021, the Douglas County Board of County Commissioners took action to temporarily suspend the issuance of new vacation home rental (VHR) permits effective February 18, 2021. The suspension is effective until the Board approves a new ordinance intended to address ongoing issues concerning public health, safety and welfare in relation to the operation of VHRs in the County. The Douglas County Manager’s Office is dedicated to making the issues surrounding VHRs a priority and will work with the Chairman of the Board to appropriately place future items on the agenda for consideration by the Board until such time as the necessary changes to the program can be enacted.

Existing permit holders may continue to renew their permits pursuant to Section 20.622.080 of the Douglas County Code. Instructions regarding the process can be viewed here:
