2 minutes, 4 seconds Read

Port Angeles, WA – The City of Port Angeles has posted to its Short-Term Lodging website (www.cityofpa.us/ShortTermLodging) the inventory report of short-term rental properties within the city. 

This inventory report indicates which properties are compliant and non-complaint within various zoning designations and how much estimated lodging tax revenue is being generated. 

The City recently announced its overall project webpage for Short-Term Lodging in Port Angeles. This page is designed to inform and invite community members to participate in the regulatory development process for short-term rental and bed-and-breakfasts operations. As part of this process, residents and stakeholders are encouraged to review the proposed regulatory measures and engage in the online survey, feedback sessions, and public hearings scheduled for January and February. 

Project Overview 

The City is proposing robust platform-based regulations for short-term rentals and bed-and-breakfast operations, including a proposed fee structure and licensing program. The initial draft is drawn from jurisdictional best practices from across the state, including the cities of Bellingham, Gig Harbor, Port Townsend, Seattle and Walla Walla, as well as feedback received from significant public comments over the past six months. Proposed municipal code revisions under consideration include: 

  • NEW: 17.23 – Short Term Rentals 
  • NEW: 17.24 – Bed and Breakfasts 
  • REPEALED: 17.18 – Bed and Breakfasts (to be replaced by Chapter 17.24 PAMC)
