The City of College Station invites residents to join city staff on Monday, Nov. 18, for a discussion about short-term housing rentals.

The informal gathering will be at 6:30 p.m. at the CSU Meeting and Training Facility at 1603 Graham Road. We’ll also serve light refreshments.

The idea of homeowners renting out their homes has evolved through online platforms such as Airbnb and expanded in College Station with the demand created by Aggie football weekends. The recent growth of short-term rentals across the nation has been dramatic, with Airbnb alone logging a half-million transactions last year in Texas.

Our discussion includes an overview of the short-term rental model and its impact on our community. We’ll address current conditions, solutions adopted by other municipalities, and elements of a prospective ordinance.

We’d like to hear not only from residents, but also real estate professionals, lodging operators, and short-term rental hosts. Elected and appointed city officials may be in attendance, but city staff will lead the activities, including small group discussions.

In an effort to better serve the community, beginning tomorrow, October 22 around 10:00 am, Castlegate II Homeowners will be able to log on to their HOA Web Portal to submit Service Issues for the Common Spaces in the neighborhood.  Once a ticket is submitted, you may keep track of the progress of the ticket and what work is being done through Homeowners Web Access. You will no longer need to send an email and wait for a response; everything will be updated in real time!

Some examples of things that may need a Service Issue are below for reference. 

  • Lights along a path/sidewalk not working
  • Damage to public/HOA property
  • Sprinklers spraying the wrong way or damaged
  • Facilities/amenities not working at the Event Center or Aquatic Center

The maintenance requests will go directly to Aggieland Houses.  Details such as work performed by Aggieland Houses, approvals, vendor work, progress etc. will be added to the Comments Section of the Service Issue for you to be able to check and follow up.  

You are hereby notified that the Castlegate II Board of Directors has agreed to immediately enforce restrictions of short term rentals as found in the community CC&Rs.

Ref. 3.34 Leasing (Defined as: a written document for a term of at least 90 days between an Owner and tenants occupying the Owner’s Lot. No Lease shall be executed by an Owner which applies to a fraction, room, bedroom or portion of a residence). Rental of Lots shall be permitted, provided the Owner executes one, and only one Lease at any given time, and the Lease designates a Primary Tenant and the Owner registers the name and contact information of the Primary Tenant with the Association within ten (10) days after commencement of the Lease. If an Owner fails to designate a Primary Tenant in the Lease or to register the name and contact information of the Primary Tenant with the Association, it shall be conclusively presumed that the Primary Tenant is the first tenant name listed in the Lease. Each Owner who enters into a Lease shall provide copies of the Declaration; Bylaws, and Rules and Regulations of Castlegate II to the Primary Tenant, and shall require compliance with the Declaration, Bylaws and Rules and Regulations of Castlegate II by the Occupant Group.

Any residents in violation will be sent violations and fined.
