Escambia County submitted a short-term vacation rental plan last night to Secretary Beshears with the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation for review, response and approval.
"We are thankful Governor DeSantis recognized the importance of short-term vacation rentals to our community yesterday during his press conference," said County Administrator Janice Gilley. "This short-term vacation rental plan was created with input from county commissioners and members of ESF-18 such as the Greater Pensacola Chamber, Visit Pensacola and the DMO. We hope for approval by Sunday for implementation on Monday, May 18." Plan was approved by Secretary Beshears on May 19 to be effective immediately.
