Bill Expands Definition of Agritourism

January 20, 2017

SB 1491 (Stuart) defines “agritourism activity” to include the rental of a single-family residence for a period of at least one week. This measure, which appears to further reduce local land use regulatory authority, has been referred to the Senate Agriculture, Conservation and Natural Resources Committee. VACo would like to receive feedback from counties on this measure. Please contact Larry Land at
