Matt Huddleston, County Administrator
On May 9, 2023, The Lake County Board of Commissioners approved by resolution, adoption of amendments to Sec. 27.06 A, Vacation Rental Home Requirements in Lake County Land Use Ordinance #12. The amendments to the ordinance will go into effect on May 28th when Interim Ordinance No. 19-2, imposing a moratorium on Vacation Rental Homes (VRH) through interim use permits (IUP), expires.
May 29th is Memorial Day and the Lake County Courthouse will be closed, therefore, Lake County will begin accepting Interim Use Applications for vacation rental homes on Tuesday May 30th at 8:00am.
Generally, the amended ordinance imposes a cap or limit to the amount of VRHs in residential zoning districts in Unorganized Territory #2, Unorganized Territory #1, Beaver Bay Township, Crystal Bay Township, Silver Creek Township, Stony River Township and Knife River. Please review all of the ordinance amendments, which will be located at www.co.lake.mn.us and contact the Lake County Environmental Services Department if you have questions.
