The Lincoln County Board of Commissioners suspended new short-term rental (STR) licenses in unincorporated county areas in March 2020. While the initial suspension was for 60 days, it was extended multiple times. It is set to expire on June 1.

The issue of where STRs should be allowed, how many should be permitted, the number of guests allowed, as well as enforcement of violations, have been discussed and hotly contested over the past year as the commissioners have grappled with how to manage the proliferation of short-term vacation rentals in residential zones in unincorporated areas of the county.
