Short Term Rentals & Accessory Dwelling Units

The City of Lafayette is considering allowing Short Term Rentals (STR) and Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU) in residential zones. We are interested in your opinions on these two topics to assist with this decision.

What are Short Term Rentals (STR)
STR are homes that have all or a portion of the home rented out for 30 or fewer days at time. Owners often list them for rent on places like Airbnb or VRBO. What are the pros and cons?

What are Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU)
ADUs are secondary living units (like carriage homes, in-law units) and are popular in Old Town. Should they be allowed in other parts of the City?

February 2020 Update

Staff and a research assistant are currently researching what impacts STRs have had on other communities. Those findings are expected to be presented to City Council in April 2020. Staff is also researching other communities' ADU regulations and whether ADUs help owners and/or renters financially. Stay tuned for more updates on ADUs.
