SHORT-TERM RENTALS SURVEY: City officials are conducting an online survey in an effort to understand Lake Oswego residents' opinions regarding short-term rentals (STRs). Among the issues: What concerns may arise if STRs are allowed but not properly regulated, and what opportunities might be lost if STRs continue to be prohibited? Responses will be used in the preparation of a draft ordinance for public review and a hearing by the Planning Commission in late 2018 or early 2019. To take the survey, go to www.ci.oswego.or.us/planning/short-term-rentals.
