Prior work sessions were held in June, July and August of 2018. At the August work <br />session, the Commission accepted staff's recommendation to create an on-line community <br />survey addressing attitudes and concerns about STRs. The Commission also recommended that <br />staff research STR regulations in other communities that are similar to Lake Oswego. <br />STR Regulations in Other Cities <br />Staff contacted 36 cities throughout the nation to review STR regulations or lack thereof. Staff <br />primarily focused on communities with the following characteristics: <br />• Relatively affluent suburbs <br />• Populations under 80,000 <br />Non -resort <br />Staff included a number of Portland -area suburbs for direct context comparison. Attachment A <br />is a summary of the cities that were surveyed, and Attachment B identifies the STR regulations <br />for each city that specifically regulates the use. The following general statements can be made <br />from the research: <br />503.635.0290 380 A Avenue PO Box 369 Lake Oswego, OR 97034 www.ci.oswego.or.us <br />
