An ordinance regulating the operation of short-term vacation rentals, such as AirBNBs, within the City of Broken Arrow goes into effect Oct. 21.
The regulations were approved by the City Council in August and established three types of short-term rentals:
No signage indicating short-term rentals is allowed for Types 1 and 2, and all must meet guidelines for off-street parking.
The Specific Use Permit for Types 2 and 3 allows the City to have oversight regarding life safety on these residences. Building inspectors and the fire marshal would ensure the property is up-to-code as part of the approval process.
While the base fee for the Specific Use Permit is currently set at $350, the actual cost of the permit would vary based on the number of residences within a 300-foot radius of the property that would need to be notified. The City estimates the total cost would average about $1,000.
Before this ordinance was adopted, no type of vacation rental was permitted under Broken Arrow ordinances. The City Council plans to review the ordinance next summer to ensure it is functioning as intended.
