NOTICE from Transylvania County to owners of Second Homes

“…we must actively recommend that, if your permanent residence is outside of Transylvania County, you do NOT come to your Transylvania County second home for the remainder of this pandemic.”

Source: Letter from Board of Commissioners, Transylvania County, 15 April 2020

Short Term Rental Allowed

The Transylvania County Board of Commissioners Monday evening voted to let an earlier resolution expire on April 30 that had closed, with exceptions, all lodging facilities, including campgrounds and direct-reservation facilities (such as AirBnb and VRBO), with rentals or leases for less than 15 days in duration. The initial resolution was set to expire April 30. On Monday, commissioners were given the option on whether to extend the resolution but, instead, decided to let it end. Read more in Thursday’s paper.


Burn Ban has been lifted

PLEASE take care with any fire

While burn permits are now available in Transylvania county, N.C. Forest Service officials continue to urge residents to reconsider burning yard debris through the end of May as careless debris burning is the leading cause of wildfires in North Carolina.
