Kick off your Tricentennial education next Tuesday, January 23rd, with “100 Years of Preservation in the French Quarter: This Didn’t Happen By Chance” presented by John Stubbs, Director of Tulane University’s Master of Preservation Studies Program
Join us this Friday, January 12th, at the Old Ursuline Convent as we reveal our lineup of events & programs celebrating the 300th birthday of New Orleans’ first neighborhood!
On Wednesday, January 3rd and again on Wednesday, January 10th, the city will continue enforcement hearings against the operators of alleged illegal short-term rentals. As a reminder, virtually all STRs are illegal in this neighborhood, with the exception of the 200-700 blocks of Bourbon Street.
This week, two city commissions will be making decisions that will affect the French Quarter for decades to come. Please read below for details on a request to allow the conversion of a church into a reception facility in the mostly-residential lower Quarter, and a request to change the zoning of a parcel on Royal to increase the height limit from 70′ to 120′.
This Wednesday’s city adjudication docket includes three French Quarter STR violations, in addition to seven others across the city. We will continue to send out these adjudication dockets so that affected neighbors may attend or contact the city regarding these properties.
On the eve of the city’s, and the Vieux Carré’s, tricentennial celebration, we’ve been looking back at 2017. It was a very good year! And your continued support of our organization has been a major factor in making it one of our most successful years ever.
The BZA will be deciding on December 11th whether the Safety and Permit determination that the site cannot be used as a reception facility is in line with what the zoning code allows. The Comprehensive Zoning Ordinance does not permit reception facilities in either of the two zones occupied by property at 1236 N Rampart.
On Wednesday, September 20th and again on Wednesday, September 27th, the city will continue enforcement hearings against the operators of alleged illegal short-term rentals. If you have any information about STR operations at any of these locations, please contact us at email@example.com or 581-7200, and of course, please plan to attend the upcoming hearing.
Join us for the final installment of our new favorite summer event (for this season, at least)! We’ll be gathering at the Black Penny (700 N. Rampart) next Thursday evening from 5pm to 7pm to raise another glass to our beloved French Quarter – with our furry friends in tow!
