Property owners who wish to rent out their homes need a permit from the City.
To assist with any questions about permitting or licensing a short term rental, the City of Bend is hosting several open houses.
The open houses will be held Aug. 24 and Sept. 9 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Council Chambers at Bend City Hall on NW Wall Street.
Owners of short term rental properties must also now submit operating license applications for each short-term rental location in order to comply with the new City ordinance. The deadline to apply for a license is September 1.
Short-term rentals are defined by the City as rentals for 29 or fewer consecutive days per year, per tenant.
