A short-term rental is a residential property that is rented for a brief duration, typically for 30 days or less.

On June 16, 2020, City Council directed City staff is work on a proposed ordinance. The proposed ordinance was initially presented at the Planning Board meeting on December 14, 2020. Planning Board voted to not move forward with proposed ordinance to allow short-term rentals. At this time, short-term rentals are not allowed in Burbank. Below is a timeline of the next steps.
