Since establishing a task force to develop policy related to short-terms rentals in Spearfish, the City is seeking community input on the draft policy goals and the topic of short-term rentals.

Community members are invited to email input to [email protected] so staff and task force members may review prior to their next meeting on Feb. 22 and throughout the process.

The draft policy goals from the City of Spearfish are shown in-full below:

These short-term rental policy goals collectively aim to create a regulatory framework that enables the continuation of the short-term rental market and addresses critical concerns related to housing, safety, taxation, and community well-being. The overarching objective is to create a balanced and sustainable short-term rental ecosystem that benefits both property owners and the broader community. Any proposed regulation should be in line with the stated policy goals.

Health and Safety: Implement policies that prioritize the health and safety of short-term rental occupants, neighbors, and the community by ensuring compliance with safety standards and guidelines and ordinances.

Housing Market: Develop measures to mitigate the impact of short-term rentals on the overall housing market, preserving the availability of long-term rental options for residents and students, and home ownership opportunities.

Balance the Opportunity for Residents to Gain Financially while honoring Community’s Values: Strive for a balance between the interest of short-term rental owners, especially local residents, while addressing the broader community’s concerns.

Fair Taxation Practices: Establish fair and transparent taxation policies for short-term rentals, which operate similarly to hotels, ensuring that short-term rental owners contribute their share to local taxes, revenues, and the services they benefit from.

Preservation of Neighborhood Character: Enforce policies that protect the unique character of neighborhoods, preventing the proliferation or concentration of short-term rentals that may disrupt the local ambiance.

Community-Driven Process: Develop regulations in partnership with residents and short-term rental owners to promote equal opportunities for input and fair regulation.
