The Twisp Town Council has scheduled a special meeting and public hearing on extension of the current moratorium on overnight rental conversions for Wednesday, Nov. 8, starting at 5 p.m. at the Twisp Civic Building.
The current moratorium, which with extensions has now been in place for 18 months, expires Nov. 9. It will require council action to extend it.
The meeting can also be accessed via the GoTo Meeting platform. Instructions to join the meeting will be posted on the Town’s website in advance of the meeting at townoftwisp.com. Copies of the draft ordinance containing findings of fact on the moratorium can be requested via phone or email through the Town Clerk’s office.
The Twisp Planning Commission earlier delivered its proposals for revising the town’s regulation of overnight rentals to the Town Council. After considering the council’s feedback, the Planning Commission held an Oct. 25 public hearing on the revised proposals.
Twisp extended its then-year-long moratorium on conversion of existing dwellings to overnight rentals for another six months in May of this year.
The current moratorium stops conversions of existing residential housing to overnight rentals, including properties in commercial zones. It does not affect hotels, motels or existing overnight rentals including B&Bs.
