Short Term Rental Licenses

Renewal Period: The annual renewal period for STR licenses is from February 20 to April 30, with a fee of $250. Licenses expire on April 30th and must be renewed by this date to avoid expiration.

Short Term Rental License Cap: A cap limits STR licenses to 25% of the residential housing units in Frisco, allowing a maximum of 900 STR Licenses.

Waitlist Registration: Due to reaching the STR license cap, a waitlist system is in place for new license applications, requiring an non-refundable $25 fee. Recent applicants in 2023-2024 have spent 6-9 months on the waitlist. *Due to the various factors that influence real estate transactions, such as market conditions, the estimated time a property will be on the waitlist is unknown*

Short-Term Rental Licenses

Anyone renting their Frisco property, or seeking to rent a property in Frisco, for less than a consecutive thirty-day period, is required to have a Short-Term Rental License and should be aware of the town’s regulations for Short-Term Rentals (STR). These regulations apply regardless of how the properties are marketed – through a management company, online through sites like Vrbo and Airbnb, newspaper, or word of mouth.

Short-Term Rental Ordinance & STR License Cap

Read the full Town of Frisco ordinance regarding short-term rental licenses:

On October 11, 2022, Town Council adopted Ordinance 22-10, limiting the maximum allowable number of STR licenses that may be issued within Town boundaries to 25% of the residential housing stock. The ordinance went into effect on October 17, 2022. There are 3,600 residential housing units in Frisco, therefore a maximum of 900 STR licenses may be issued.

Short-Term Rental License Application Waitlist

On February 23, 2023, Frisco reached its short-term rental license cap and is now implementing a waitlist for those wishing to apply for a short-term rental license. To be placed on the waitlist:

Complete and submit the form below. A non-refundable $25 waitlist application fee will be applied and is separate from the STR license application fee.

  • Applicants must provide proof of ownership (i.e. bill of sale, a screenshot of Summit County Assessor’s GIS data, warranty deed, property tax statement) and the property owner’s government-issued identification. Any STR waitlist application received without proof of current owners, will be denied.
  • Once the form has been submitted, your entry will be time-stamped and placed on the waitlist in the order it was received. You will receive an email from confirming your submission as well as a registration number. An updated waitlist will be posted monthly and can be found by clicking “STR License Waitlist” below.
  • If you change the property owner’s name or property address after submitting the form, you will lose your placement on the waitlist. You will then need to email to cancel your initial waitlist registration and submit a new one.
  • When an STR license becomes available, Town staff will contact the next person on the waitlist via email, at which point they will have 10 days to submit a complete STR license application. If a complete application is not received within 10 days, the STR license will be denied, the applicant will lose their placement on the waitlist, and no refund will be issued.
  • When a license becomes available, the property owner and property address provided on the form below must match the property owner and property address that is submitted on the STR license application.
