CITY ISSUES ZONING INTERPRETATION CHANGE

FOR SHORT-TERM RENTALS

NEW ORLEANS – The City of New Orleans Department of Safety and Permits today

released a zoning interpretation establishing changes to commercial short-term rental (STR) licensing. The Board of Zoning Adjustments (BZA) determined during its previous meeting that commercial STRs will now be considered a commercial use under the Comprehensive Zoning Ordinance.

 

The Department had previously considered commercial STRs to be a residential use in a primarily commercial area. This change means that effective immediately, they are now considered the same as all other commercial-use buildings. Applicants for new commercial STR permits will also have to apply for a building permit before they can be eligible for the STR permit. This will include a zoning and plan review of the structure for commercial use.
