Shasta County Department of Resource Management is in the early stages of developing an ordinance addressing short-term or vacation rentals and is seeking feedback from county residents and property owners on the various aspects of the short-term rental market.

Public Workshops - As part of the process of compiling county resident feedback, the department will be sponsoring three public workshops.

Workshop #1

Tuesday, October 3rd, 6pm to 9pm
the Lions Club in Lakehead
20814 Mammoth Drive
Lakehead, CA 96051

Workshop #2

Wednesday, October 4th, 7pm to 9pm
Black Butte Middle School
7649 Ponderosa Way
Shingletown, CA 96088

Workshop #3

Thursday, November 9th @ 2pm
Shasta County Board of Supervisors Chambers
1450 Court St # 308B
Redding, CA 96001

Survey - The department is also encouraging Shasta County property owners and residents to complete an online survey available through October 26th, to provide feedback and insights about short-term rentals across the county. The survey provides an opportunity to shape future regulation of short-term rentals by allowing respondents to prioritize the issues and to share their experiences with the short-term rental market. This input will help Shasta County make policy choices that meet our current and future needs.

Short-term rentals are a complex topic that raise important questions about balancing housing, quality of life, and economic development in our towns and communities. While vacation rentals and tourism play a large part in the local economy, many residents are concerned about the potential impact of short-term rentals on housing availability and the character of our neighborhoods.

The Shasta County  Board of Supervisors adopted ordinance 16-001 establishing regulations for Medical Marijuana deliveries and cultivation on February 2, 2016.

Medical Marijuana cultivation complaints need to be in writing and delivered to Resource Management, located at 1855 Placer Street, Redding CA. Once the complaint is received and recorded, Resource Management will forward the document to the proper enforcement individuals.


In an effort to process a high-volume and backlog of existing applications, the Department of Resource Management will be unable to process or accept new permit application submittals on Wednesdays, until further notice.  During this time, our lobby will remain open on Wednesdays for dispensing general information and issuing of permits only.
