Catchup with Council- June 28, 2022 Meeting

At the June 14, 2022 Town Council work session, Town staff presented a general overview of short-term rentals in Frisco and Summit County and various strategies that could forward the goal of increasing availability of workforce housing. While short-term rentals in Frisco do not make up as big of a percentage of housing units as some surrounding areas, their ubiquity has been identified as a factor in the limited availability of affordable housing.
