We have a new use in town that doesn't exactly fit any of the use definitions in our zoning ordinance, so it is left to staff to make an interpretation of which district is most closely related and applicable. In short, the use in question is a whole house rental, but rented for short periods. While it has been rented for as long as 6 months, it is most frequently rented for a weekend or a few days. The basic decision is whether to classify this a single family dwelling or a Bed and Breakfast.
The proponent argues that it is a SF home, since there are no services provided (meals, laundry, hosting, etc.) and the whole house is rented, not individual rooms. In other words, just because it rented on a daily basis doesn't change the fact that it is simply a SF home rented for short periods.
The neighborhood organization suggests that it should be classified as a B&B based on the characteristics of the use that seem to make it more like other "lodging" uses rather than other residential uses (advertises online for daily rentals, including on B&B websites, they pay hotel tax, although they argue they are not required to by law, occupants are transient rather than making a permanent residence, etc.).
Just looking for any thoughts as I prepare my formal interpretation.
