COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho — The city of Coeur d'Alene will adopt several code changes to short-term rental permits.
On March 1, short-term rental permits must be renewed. In an effort to crack down on illegal short-term rentals, the city will propose the code amendments on Feb.14 to the Planning Commission, and then to City Council on Feb. 21. The changes to the code will then be adopted after.
One code change said renters will no longer be allowed to rent out short-term residences for 14 days without a permit. The original code said renters would be allowed to rent out places for 14 days without a permit.
Current permit holders are allowed to renew their permits for one year, but the city will not take new short-term rental permit applications for 2023. According to the city of Coeur d'Alene, the city will use this time to discuss new code changes with property owners within six months.
Fees to hold permits will be increased on an annual basis. Annual renewal of permits will be increased from $84 to $180. Violation fees for operating a rental without a permit will be increased.
Property owners who operate a rental without a permit will pay $1,000 on the first offense, $2,000 for the second and $5,000 for the third offense.
