STATELINE, Nev. — The first meeting of the Douglas County Vacation Home Rental Task Force is officially in the books.

The group met for the first time April 15 to review the history of vacation home rentals and establish the framework for the activities of the Task Force moving forward, according to a press release.

The purpose of the VHR Task Force was defined by the Douglas County Board of County Commissioners during their board meeting on Jan. 24:

“To assist the County Manager with drafting recommendations regarding the administration and regulation of Vacation Home Rentals in Douglas County in a way which would balance the rights of the property owner with the rights of the neighbors.”

The task force roster was expanded earlier this year after county commissioners noted the original list seemed to favor rentals.

A webpage with taskforce meeting materials, background information, timeline and important documents pertaining to the VHRTF has been created and can be found at

For more information about the Task Force or questions pertaining to the Task Force contact Jenifer Davidson, assistant county manager, at 775-782-9821 or
