A final revision to New Fairfield's Short Term Rental Regulation has been posted on the town's website.  An amendment to Zoning Regulations allows Short Term Rentals, provided that the leasing or use of a residential site by someone other than the title owner, is for six days or less.  Other requirements include issuance of Zoning Permit based on a site plan approved by the New Fairfield Zoning Commission.  The permit is $500 for 24 months.  The property owner must be in residence on the property or an abutting property.  A certificate of Insurance for the Proposed Use must be obtained.  Occupancy is  limited to 2 people per bedroom.
