The City of Charlottetown Planning & Heritage Department wishes to invite residents to a public consultation open house for the City to update and receive feedback from residents on potential regulations and licensing requirements for short-term rentals (STRs) within the City of Charlottetown.

Short-term rentals are defined as the rental of a dwelling unit or a portion of a dwelling unit for a period of less than 30 consecutive days. Any STR regulations will have a number of different implications for residents, homeowners/renters, hosts, and the tourism industry. These proposed regulations went to Planning Board in March 2020 to proceed to public consultation, however due to COVID-19, they were placed on hold at that time. The public meeting is now scheduled to proceed, and the feedback received from residents will be considered when finalizing the STR regulatory framework.

For contact tracing purposes, and due to the capacity limit of 300 seats, those wishing to participate in person must register in advance. If capacity is reached, or if residents are unable or uncomfortable to attend in person, they can participate in the public meeting via videoconference (Webex). The presentation will also be live streamed at www.charlottetown.ca/video and will be available to watch anytime on the City of Charlottetown’s YouTube channel following the public consultation.

Residents wishing to participate via videoconference or teleconference are encouraged to contact the Planning & Heritage Department by email at planning@charlottetown.ca or call 902-629-4158 by Thursday, May 13, 2021.

Anyone wishing to view the proposed amendments/presentation can visit the City’s website at www.charlottetown.ca and find the Short Term Rental Process Tab under Mayor and Council. As the City encourages written submission, please forward any written comments before May 21, 2021 to the Planning & Heritage Department at P.O. Box 98, 199 Queen Street, Charlottetown, PE, C1A 7K2. Comments may also be emailed to planning@charlottetown.ca. Any responses received will become part of the public record.

What are Relaxed Performances?

 

Sometimes referred to as sensory-friendly experiences, Relaxed Performances give the opportunity for those with various sensitivities towards sensory stimuli to experience and enjoy live theatre.

These performances will be designed in a way to be more comfortable for audience members who may experience anxiety or are not comfortable with some aspects of a traditional theatre setting. This can include people on the Autism Spectrum and their families; those with sensory and communicative disorders or learning disabilities; people with Tourette’s syndrome; someone who might need to move often due to chronic pain or to use the facilities; or even parents with toddlers.

 

Relaxed Performances offered during the 2021 Charlottetown Festival:
