Some Annapolis property owners who don’t live in their homes but wish to rent them out as a short-term rental will have to apply for a special exception under a bill being considered by the Annapolis City Council at its Monday meeting. Ordinance O-7-21 would make non-owner-occupied short-term rentals a non-conforming use in the R2-NC and C1 and C1A conservation residence districts. New permit seekers or those wishing to transfer an existing permit would be required to file a special exception application with the Planning and Zoning Department that the Annapolis Board of Appeals would review.
