WITH SOME IMPOSED LIMITATIONS BY SARASOTA COUNTY ZONING REGULATIONS, MEADOWS SINGLE-FAMILY HOMEOWNERS WHO ARE NOT PART OF A SUB-HOA MAY RENT THEIR HOMES DURING THE 2017 WORLD ROWING CHAMPIONSHIPS for a period of one week or more—but only from September 1 through October 31, 2017. The intent is to provide housing options for visitors attending the 2017 WORLD ROWING CHAMPIONSHIPS, scheduled September 23 through October 1.

Prior to the MCA Board of Directors vote to amend the Restrictions last December, said homes could be rented only for at least two months and no more than twice within a 12-month period. Please note, however, that under Sarasota County zoning, a home rented for less than 30 days cannot be rented again for at least another 30 days.
