Freedom—March 10, 2022—Freedom voters on Tuesday approved a warrant article permitting short-term rentals (STRs) provided that owners obtain a special use permit.
The vote was 142 in favor and 92 opposed.
The permit process is designed to “ensure that life safety and water quality protections are met,” according to the wording of the article.
Property owners will also have an annual limit of 90 days for such rentals.
The article had received push-back in social media posts by rental property owners, real estate developers and individuals associated with property management services.
