Avon Voters to Decide Short-Term Rental Tax Question to Support Community Housing in November


On August 24th, the Avon Town Council passed Resolution 21-20 to refer a two precent Short-Term Rental Tax Ballot Question to the Avon Electorate at the November 2, 2021 coordinated election.


The 2018 Town of Avon Community Housing Plan states a goal to secure additional local funds for housing and to seek opportunities for new funding sources. The proposed 2% Short-Term Rental Tax Rate increase would be a dedicated funding source for Community Housing. The Tax would be applicable to a short-term rental (less than 30 days) for any property that is not assessed as a commercial property. A two percent increase in Avon’s Short-Term Rental tax is estimated generate $1 million annually and would be used exclusively for Community Housing initiatives, including housing developments, housing programs and related activities.


More information on this referred ballot measure is available at under the elections section. For voter registration information, visit
