As required, the Twisp Town Council will hold a public hearing next Tuesday (June 14) on its recent action imposing a six-month moratorium on conversions of existing residential housing to overnight rentals, including properties in commercial zones, while the town considers its long-term policy options for such accommodations.
The hearing will be at 5:30 p.m. The council’s meetings are accessible remotely via the GoTo Meeting platform, or by phone. For information about how to participate, visit www.townoftwisp.com/index.php/announcements. To submit a comment in advance, contact Town Clerk Randy Kilmer at (509) 997-4081.
The council took the moratorium action unanimously at its April 26 meeting, and the ordinance imposing the ban took effect immediately. The ordinance requires that the council hold a public hearing on the moratorium within 60 days.
The moratorium does not affect hotels, motels or existing overnight rentals including B&Bs.
