Form CenterThe Town of Lyons is looking for local residents to participate in a survey regarding Short-Term Vacation Rentals (STVRs) in Lyons. With the significant increase of both hosting and booking through AirBnB, VRBO, etc. as a means for short-term lodging in Lyons, the Town’s Planning & Community Development Commission is looking to recommend some changes to the Town’s current code that would make STVR legal (a “use-by-right”). Currently, this type of short-term lodging is not allowed in Residential zoning districts without a business license for a Bed & Breakfast. The Town would like to create some rules to protect the character of the neighborhoods in Lyons while also allowing Short-Term Vacation Rentals (STVRs) as a means for additional income for Lyons residents and an opportunity for more visitors to stay in our lovely town. In an effort to understand the various sides to this issue, the Town is looking for input. Please take a moment to fill out this short, 10-question survey to weigh in on this hot topic.
Survey closes at 11:59 p.m. on Monday, September 26. All survey submissions will be anonymous.
