THE HENRICO COUNTY BOARD OF SUPERVISORS
WILL HOLD A PUBLIC HEARING IN THE BOARD ROOM
OF THE COUNTY ADMINISTRATION BUILDING IN THE
GOVERNMENT CENTER AT PARHAM AND HUNGARY
SPRING ROADS, 7:00 P.M., TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 25, 2020
TO CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING:

ORDINANCE – To Amend and Reordain Section 24-3 Titled “Definitions,”
Section 24-12 Titled “Conditional uses permitted by special exception,”
Section 24-13 Titled “Accessory uses permitted,” Section 24-13.01 Titled
“Development standards and conditions for permitted uses,” Section 2413.2 Titled “Accessory uses permitted,” Section 24-13.3 Titled “Conditional
uses permitted,” Section 24-28 Titled “Principal uses permitted,” Section
24-39 Titled “Accessory uses permitted,” Section 24-94 Titled “Table of
regulations,” Section 24-96 Titled “Off-street parking requirements,” and
Section 24-121 Titled “Conditional zoning or zone approval” of the Code
of the County of Henrico. This ordinance allows for short-term rentals of
real estate for periods of fewer than 30 consecutive days. Specifically, this
ordinance allows hosted short-term rentals by right in the R-0, R-0A, R-1,
R-1A, R-2, R-2A, R-3, R-3A, R-4, and R-4A residential districts and A-1
agricultural district if (i) the property owner remains at the property during
the rental, (ii) the short-term renters lodge in the principal dwelling, and
not a guesthouse (iii) the property is on a lot with 80 feet or more of road
frontage, (iv) no more than six short-term renters occupy the property during
the rental, and (v) the property is used as a short-term rental no more than
60 days in a calendar year. For all other short-term rentals in those districts,
this ordinance requires the operator of the rental to obtain a conditional use
permit. All short-term rentals would be subject to regulations restricting
other commercial uses at short-term rentals and limiting rentals to the
operator’s primary residence owned by him. The ordinance would also limit
the number of short-term renters and pets and the hours when checkin and check-out services may be offered. The ordinance would prohibit
rentals to minors and double-booking. The ordinance would require:
provision of life-safety equipment consistent with the building code, posting
of certain information within the rental, designation of adults to respond
to complaints, keeping of records of short-term rentals, and provision of
off-street parking. Finally, the ordinance would add and revise definitions
related to the rental of real estate.
Anyone may attend and express an opinion on the above. Files on the above
are available in the Planning Department, County Administration Building for
examination between 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. each business day.
