LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The City of North Las Vegas will consider two ordinances concerning short-term rentals in residential areas of the city at their City Council meeting Wednesday evening.

The pair of ordinances make residential rentals legal and lay the ground rules for the establishment and operation of rentals.

Interested parties must apply for a business license with the city and meet a list of criteria to begin renting.

To get the business license, several things prospective renters must do include:

  1. Send a "Good Neighbor" brochure to every home within 200 feet of the rental property and the HOA or property owner if applicable.
  2. Ensure that there is no proposed or existing short-term rental property within 660 feet of the property unless a "significant barrier" separates the two properties.
  3. Install sound monitoring equipment in outdoor common areas like pools.
  4. Pay an annual licensing fee of $900.

The rental properties cannot be used for large parties like weddings.

The ordinances are not up for action at the 4 p.m. City Council meeting, and if it moves to the next agenda, will be up for a vote at the council's Oct. 21 meeting.
