Truckee Town Manager Jen Callaway explains, “Our Short-Term Rental Division has been working tirelessly to prepare for the opening of the waitlist and are doing everything they can to make the process run smoothly. We want it to be a fair and equitable process and hope to give applicants clear information so that they know what they need to prepare and what to expect for next steps.”

The STR Division will move through the waitlist in the order that they are received and when registrations become available, they will notify the next in-line waitlist applicant that they can proceed with registration.
