Short-Term Rental Statistics

Chelan County Code: The Community Development Director shall annually by March 15 determine the share of short-term rentals to the overall housing stock in each of the unincorporated zip codes and urban growth areas, and accordingly schedule a permit application time window, to be held only once annually between June 1 and July 31, to allow new short-term rental applications for the following year in each zip code and growth area where the cap is not exceeded.

The chart below is updated monthly.
