Short-Term Rentals – Next Rounds of City Enforcement Hearings

 

CORRECTION AND APOLOGY

Yesterday, VCPORA circulated the city’s agendas for the upcoming enforcement hearings.  One of those agendas contained a grave error, listing Brobson Lutz’s and Kenneth Combs home on Dumaine Street as the site of alleged violations of the city’s prohibition on short-term rentals in the French Quarter. Once we were alerted to the error, we contacted the city, who explained that there had been a glitch between data in the city’s information and that in the assessor’s database.  They have issued a corrected agenda (below).

Regardless, Drs. Lutz’s and Combs’ names were included in an email that we sent out, and which can rightly be considered slanderous.  

These gentlemen have been stalwart citizens of New Orleans and the French Quarter for decades, and we deeply regret that we compounded the city’s error by circulating the erroneous agenda.  We offer our profound apologies to both of them.

 

Short-Term Rentals – Next Rounds of City Enforcement Hearings

Wednesday, July 26 at 9am 

Wednesday, August 2 at 9am 

City Hall – 7th Floor Conference Room

On Wednesday, July 26th and again on Wednesday, August 2nd, the city will continue enforcement hearings against the operators of alleged illegal short-term rentals. STR cases are scheduled to begin at 9am, with many, but not all located in the French Quarter. Below is the list of addresses and owners of Quarter properties that are on the docket. Hopefully, the city will continue to levy significant enforcement fines on violators of the STR ordinance. As a reminder, virtually all STRs are illegal in this neighborhood, with the exception of the 200-700 blocks of Bourbon Street

If you have any information about STR operations at any of these locations, please contact us at info@vcpora.org or 581-7200, and of course, please plan to attend the upcoming hearing.

Barcelona cracks down on Airbnb rentals with illegal apartment squads | Cities | The Guardian

BarcelonaThe next time you book a holiday apartment in Barcelona you may wake up to find an inspector standing at the end of the bed. Amid growing evidence that the massive upsurge in tourist apartments is driving rents up and residents out, the city has launched a crackdown on illegal, unlicensed apartments

“Our attitude is zero tolerance. We will do everything we can to guarantee the right to housing in the city,” Sanz said. “What these people have to understand is that Barcelona exists for its people. The priority is it’s a place to live.”
