Proposed ordinance brings expensive changes to

Clark County short-term rentals.


LAS VEGAS (KSNV) — Dwight Calwhite operates a short-term rental in Clark County. He does it to earn supplemental income, but he also said it’s a passion of his. He wants to buy a second property, but with the new proposed ordinance on short-term rentals from Clark County, he said it’s essentially punishing people like him.

Clark County today released its draft short-term rental (STR) ordinance as part of a “business impact statement” process required by Nevada law. The drafting of the ordinance was prompted by the passage during the 2021 Legislature of Assembly Bill 363, which mandates that Clark County allow short-term rentals such as Airbnb and VRBO.
