JAMES CITY – There’s frustration on both sides of the dais at the James City County Planning Commission.
Late last year, the county planning staff started cracking down on people with homes listed for rent on vacation platforms like VRBO and AirBnB without having first gotten a special use permit (SUP) from the county to operate.
Planning staff sent out 30-plus notice of violation letters to people whose homes they found listed online who had never applied to operate legally.
That’s led to a parade of people coming before the Planning Commission seeking after-the-fact approval. But the guidelines meant to outline where short-term rentals can operate have been somewhat subjectively applied on a case-by-case basis.
