The Leelanau Township Board, at their Regular Board Meeting on Tuesday, September 8, 2020, approved the Short Term Rental Ordinance listed below with a change to the maximum allowed occupancy. The maximum occupancy of a Short Term Rental will be based upon the number of bedrooms in the rental, with a maximum occupancy of 15 occupants.

Draft Short Term Rental Ordinance 08-27-2020

A Short Term Rental Permit will be required to operate a Short Term Rental in Leelanau Township beginning in 2021.

Now that the Ordinance has been approved, the next step is for the township board to approve the procedures and fees for processing permits. This will be done in October.

It is anticipated that Applications for Short Term Rental will be available and accepted sometime in November 2020.
