MADISON  — The planning board tonight will hold a public hearing on a proposed ordinance to legalize short-term rentals in town. The ordinance may be voted on in March.

Voters last March passed the planning board’s Article 6, which said a dwelling unit can’t be used for transients and which town officials said effectively banned STRs. Since then, the planning board has worked to get an article on the warrant next year to legalize and regulate STRs.
