Block Party Petition

On March 22, 2021, Ferndale City Council adopted an ordinance regulating Short Term Rentals (STRs) operating with City limits. The ordinance seeks to regulate Short Term Rentals by requiring annual registration and inspections. The STR Ordinance goes into effect on July 22, 2021, and will require all STR’s to register with the City. Registration and inspection services will be completed by the Ferndale Building Department.

A majority (51%) of signatures of property owners on the block is required for a block party permit. Petitions must be submitted at least one week prior to date of the party. Signatures will be verified through assessing and/or voter registration records. Multiple signers from a single household and unverifiable signatures will not be counted. Parking vehicles crosswise in the street or creating an obstacle that in any manner impedes access for emergency vehicles is a danger to public safety and not allowable, pursuant to Chap. 16, Sec. 16-12 (J) of the Code of Ordinances. Barricades will be supplied by the city and must be erected at each end of the block by the applicants.
