City of Jacksonville


  • Evaluate and make recommendations on the City’s zoning and other laws to determine whether there are limitations on the ability of short-term vacation rental uses to operate in the City and to ensure their compatibility with other adjacent or nearby uses if they were allowed.
  • Investigate the ability of the City to collect the appropriate taxes for such uses and suggest improvements to facilitate collection of all such amounts owed.
  • Evaluate and make recommendations on potential methods that owners and/or operators of short-term vacation rentals would be required to use to register with the City similar to other requirements for home occupation providers already in existence.
  • Investigate and address “leasing strategies” that are employed or may be employed to circumvent zoning regulations for long-term rentals including the ability to break a long-term lease with no penalty in order to appear to be long-term while facilitating a short-term rental.
  • Evaluate the City’s code enforcement capabilities and make recommendations regarding enforcement of any regulations imposed on short-term vacation rentals.
