BACKGROUND: 

Currently, transient commercial use of residential development for remuneration is prohibited in all residential zoning districts. With the proliferation of short-term residential rental units within the County the Nevada State Legislature approved Assembly Bill 363 (AB 363) and on June 4, 2022, the Governor of the State of Nevada signed into law AB 363 that requires Clark County to adopt and enforce an ordinance regulating: (a) the rental of a residential unit or a room within a residential unit for the purposes of transient lodging; and (b) accommodations facilitators.

AB 363 required the ordinance to contain certain provisions and certain minimum standards, such as (a) setting forth the requirements for an application ; (b) establishing the annual fees and minimum liability insurance coverage; (c) prohibiting the rental of a residential unit within an apartment building; (d) prohibiting the rental of a residential unit for less than a minimum number of days; (e) establishing requirements to ensure a minimum distance between residential units and between a residential unit and a resort hotel; (f) establishing the maximum occupancy requirements for a residential unit; (g) prohibit more than 10% of residential units within a multifamily dwelling; (h) prohibit residential units in common-interest communities unless the governing documents expressly authorize the rental of a residential unit for transient lodging purposes; (i) establish a maximum number of licenses that a person may hold; (j) establish a maximum number of licenses that may be issued for the rental of rooms within a single residential unit; (k) define "party" and prohibit the use of a residential unit for parties, weddings, events or other large gatherings; (l) establish specific requirements for noise, trash, and security; (m) establish a process for a person to report violations; and (n) establish a schedule of civil penalties for violations. 
  
Staff recommends that the ordinance to amend Title 4, Chapter 4.08; Title 6, Chapter 6.12; Title 7, Chapters 7.100 (NEW) and 7.110 (NEW); and Title 30, Chapter 30.44 of the County Code be introduced and a public hearing be set for June 21, 2022, at 10 a.m.
