VHR Permit Waitlist

Douglas County currently uses a waitlist process as defined below. 

Waitlist Process
Douglas County will establish a list of property owners who will be randomly selected to qualify to apply for the remaining permits available under the 600 permit cap. The remaining applicants will be placed on a waitlist to qualify to apply for future available permits.

*Please note Douglas County created an online registration and application guide to assist applicants with completing this process. Applicants will need to register first before applying.

Waitlist Selection:

Douglas County staff is in the process of verifying each of the application on the waitlist that the property is not currently being advertised or rented.  Some of the applicants have been identified as advertising the unit for rent without first obtaining a permit and they will be notified as well and removed from the waitlist.
