Short-Term Rentals


Jackson Township Short-Term Rental Ordinance has been in existence since July of 2018.  Short-Term Rentals are not permitted in the Residential (R1) Zoning District or where Owner's Associations do not permit short-term rentals. Existing permitted properties in this zoning district, may continue to operate as nonconforming (as stated within the Ordinance). Operating, advertising or booking short-term rentals is illegal without a valid permit.  Permits, once issued, are renewed annually. 

Scroll down to view and download guidance documents that are needed to understand the process and to get started with applying for the permit.  We recommend reading the ordinance and then completing the permit application.  The fillable form works best with Adobe.  A guidance document, updated regularly,  is also available to assist with compiling the required information. See below for all forms and documents.
We strongly encourage applicants to submit the Permit Application and Supporting Documents via email, as attachments (pdf format), to
The initial non-refundable permit fee is $750, payable to 'Jackson Township'.  This fee may be mailed or hand-delivered.  The annual renewal fee is $400.  Permit review can begin after the required fee is received.

Once an application is deemed complete (all required paperwork and fee), our office will contact the owner or agent with instructions for scheduling the inspection.
  Up to two inspections are included with the permit fee for an initial permit.  An additional $70 per inspection will be incurred if additional inspections are needed to demonstrate compliance.  After a satisfactory inspection, the permit will be issued within a short period of time.   

Suggestions for updates on this web page are welcome.  Email is encouraged.  Thank You for your interest!
