On February 1, 2022 a Short Term Advisory Committee was formed to research, analyze and create a County Ordinance to manage STR’s in Tillamook County. The Advisory Committee Reviewed the 12/13/2018 Tillamook County Short Term Rental Committee Report & an Initial Draft of Ordinance 84 – called the “Tillamook County Short Term Rental Ordinance”
Since then the Advisory Committee has been meeting every month to get community feedback, review survey results and begin to formulate an Ordinance to implement within the county.
Ordinance 84 – “Tillamook County Short Term Rental Ordinance” is set up to Regulate Short Term Rentals; Establish Standards & Fees; Provide for a Permit, and Create Penalties for Violations of this Ordinance.
