Amending Chapter 18, “Buildings and Building Regulations,” Article II, Section 18-40, to enact provisions for regulation of short term rental. 


PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS AS A COMMITTEE SUBSTITUTE, DEBATE"
Greg Franzen, City Planning and Development, gave the staff report on the Ordinance. This revision to Chapter 18, Kansas City Building & Rehabilitation Code, is offered as a potential companion to the Short Term Rental amendments as proposed to Chapter 88, Zoning & Development Code. This ordinance was developed at the request of the City Plan Commission to consider options to minimize the building code impact on these types of uses. A concern of the CPC based on public testimony was the impact of building code-mandated upgrades for these uses, especially a mandate for a fire sprinkler system. Currently adopted are the 2012 International Building Code (IBC) and 2012 International Residential Code (IRC), as amended. The currently adopted IRC allows the rental of a single family house or duplex unit to a single entity with no trigger of building code improvements, as the IRC does not distinguish transient vs non-transient use. To address limited examples where individual bedrooms are rented separately, this ordinance would add the concept of 'Lodging House' found in the more recent 2018 edition of the IBC to our current building code. The Lodging House provision would allow for the sharing of a house with up to 5 guest rooms and 10 total occupants (including permanent residents); and also provides that if the guests live in common in the dwelling with the owner, then the use will remain considered a single family dwelling as permitted under the IRC. For building code purposes, 'owner occupied' requires that the owner be present and sharing the dwelling to utilize this provision. This provision could apply to uses considered 'short term rental' or 'bed & breakfast' under Chapter 88 zoning definitions. Note that the unamended 2012 I-codes require fire sprinklers in all residential occupancies, even detached houses; however, due to MO State statute, fire sprinklers are not required in projects within the scope of the IRC (ie detached single family dwellings, duplexes, and attached townhouses). The second change in this ordinance addresses dwelling units in multifamily residential buildings. The 2012 IBC distinguishes transient (occupancy 30 days or less) vs non-transient use in multifamily residential buildings, where transient use is considered a more hazardous use. The current code allows that uses that are 'primarily nontransient' can be considered nontransient. This ordinance includes text to clarify that in a multi-family building, short term rental of up to 25% of the total number of units in the building could be considered to be primarily nontransient in nature, and therefore would not be considered to be a change of occupancy classification of the building.
