Maui County Council Proposed Phase Out of Transient Vacation Rentals

Thursday, August 26, 2021 5:25 AM | Executive Director (Administrator)

Proposal to Phase out Vacation Rentals in Apartment Zones starting 12/31/21

Maui County Council has Proposed a Bill to Phase Out of Vacation Rentals. This bill proposed today in council says that it intends to create more units available for residential use by phasing out transient accommodations in the apartment districts. 

The resolution says current vacation use is allowed in buildings within the apartment zoned areas until a date after 12/31/2021 when said properties are sold or transferred. So any sale or transfer after 12/31/2021 would mean the vacation rental use of this property is not allowed.

The buildings in the apartment district that this bill would affect include the properties on this short term occupancy list published by the county Department of Planning. This proposal is heading to a future agenda on the Planning and Sustainable Land Use Committee.

At this point, this is just a county communication and the proposal will be discussed in an upcoming PSLU committee first and then be transmitted to the planning commission subsequently. We will keep you updated on the progress and when opportunities arise to submit testimony.
