City launches website for easier registration process

The City of St. Augustine City Commission passed Resolution 2020-27, adopting a fee schedule regarding short term vacation rentals within the city limits.  The components of the resolution include registration fees, annual registration renewal fees, late fees for annual registration renewal and re-inspection fees.

“The most important thing for rental owners to know,” urged Planning and Building Director David Birchim, “is that they will be required to register now, regardless of whether or not they have been registered with us in the past.  This is for every rental.”  

In order to easily and efficiently administer the requirements of the resolution, the Planning and Building Department developed a website landing page, The page provides zoning information, links to register a rental, the tiered rate fee schedule, inspection information, links to resources, floor plan and survey site plan samples, frequently asked questions, and contact information.

For information about short term rentals, refer to the Short Term Rentals page.
