Short-Term Rental Regulations – Feedback Requested

City council passed an emergency moratorium on short-term rentals at their July 17, 2018 meeting that is in effect through October. During this time, no new business licenses can be issued for any other short-term rental properties within the city until after new regulations are passed.

In the meantime, the city is seeking feedback on the proposed short-term rental regulations that will be discussed at the September 10 planning commission study session and September 24 public hearing. Comments must be submitted by September 18 to be included in the planning staff’s September 24th presentation.

Littleton Flower Shop moves back to downtown Littleton

Littleton Flower Shop, previously located near Hudson Gardens, recently moved back to downtown Littleton. Rich with history, the shop first opened in 1936 and was Littleton’s first flower shop. After previous owners moved the shop out of downtown Littleton in the 1980’s, owners Dawn and Mike Ellis are excited to return and give back to the community that has fostered the shop since its inception. At its new location, the shop will offer DIY classes, allowing customers to put a personal touch on any event that may need a floral arrangement. The first class, DIY Wedding Designs, will take place in October. For more information about Littleton Flower Shop, please visit
