Our Mission

To preserve the Vieux Carré as a national treasure, to maintain its quaint and distinctive character and to achieve in that historic, living neighborhood a quality of life which can be enjoyed by residents, fellow citizens, businesses and visitors.

Current Issues


Air Rights Update

Great news for historic neighborhoods and New Orleans citizens! At the Friday, March 17th Governmental Affairs committee meeting, the Landrieu administration agreed to suspend the imposition of air rights leases for 30 days while they reexamine the policy.


April 2017 At Home in the Vieux Carré

Please join us for a springtime At Home in the Vieux Carre on this balconied stretch of Ursulines. This beautiful blue port cochere is the home of hosts Marie-Francoise Crouch and Michel Bechetoille.


Short Term Rental Updates from the Lens

Keep up with the latest would-be STRs – outside of the French Quarter, of course – using this handy map from The Lens! So far, only a handful of operators has filed applications. The deadline is April 1, so we expect to see a flood of applications in the next 2 weeks.
