 Vacation Home rentals in Granite Shoals - Authorized 4 25 2019_page_001.jpg

The Zoning Ordinance prohibits residents from renting out their homes as Vacation Rental homes or Short-Term Rentals in the city limits of Granite Shoals.  The definition of short term rental is fewer than 30 days.   

When the Ordinance to prohibit Short Term rentals passed in 2012, citizens who were already engaged in this business were allowed to continue after registering with the City and paying their Hotel Occupancy Taxes.  Only the original businesses registered in 2012 may rent their homes on a short-term basis.   These homes, if ownership is changed, lose their status as pre-existing Vacation Rental.  

To Review the Ordinance, please see the Granite Shoals City Code of Ordinances On-line, Zoning Chapter 40.  Here is the link.
