Placer County is establishing standards for short-term vacation rentals in unincorporated areas of Placer County.
Short-term vacation rentals are residential units rented for 30 days or less, typically advertised for vacation rentals on web-based platforms. The County currently requires a Transient Occupancy Tax certificate to operate a vacation rental in Placer County. The County is proposing to establish permitting requirements for short-term vacation rentals including regulations for noise, parking, waste collection, occupancy limits, and guest safety.
Staff is preparing to present a proposed Short-Term Vacation Rental Ordinance to the Board of Supervisors on October 22. The staff report and draft ordinance will be available for review prior to the hearing.
Information for Existing Short-Term Vacation Rentals
Placer County currently requires that the Good Neighbor flyer be listed within the interior of a rental unit:

Vacation Rental Hotline
In August, Placer County launched a new round-the-clock complaint hotline to report nuisances related to short-term vacation rental properties. Operated by Host Compliance, the hotline is intended to offer neighbors a simple, anonymous alternative to calling law enforcement to report non-emergency issues like noise or parking problems caused by short-term rental guests. The hotline number is 530-448-8003. Complaints may also be filed online: https://safe.hostcompliance.com/tips/route
