The Board of Directors of the Meadowdale Hills Property Owners Association would like to clarify the status of the Association in terms of short-term rentals (currently, rentals less than thirty-one consecutive days) of properties within the Association.

Meadowdale Hills is zoned “O” (Open) in unincorporated Larimer County, and is not a part of the Estes Valley Planning District. Therefore, we are governed in the matter of short-term rentals by the Land Use Code of Larimer County. The Land Use Code restriction, which has been in place since June15, 1992, prohibits short-term rentals in unincorporated areas zoned “O” (Open) without a special review process.

Short-term vacation rentals have regrettably become a nuisance in the Association. Several complaints have been filed with the Larimer County Code Compliance against owners offering short-term rentals in Meadowdale Hills, and owners have received cease and desist letters from Larimer County. More complaints are pending.

 The minutes of the Board of County Commissioners meeting August 17, 2015, which resolved these complaints can be found at
