Applications & Permits
All work undertaken on the exterior of any building, old or new, in the Vieux Carré, whether it is visible from the street or not, requires a permit from the Commission. The exterior of a building includes all elements exposed to the weather, including front, side and back walls, patios, galleries, balconies, floors, fences, signs, exterior stairs, passageways, carriageways, and sidewalks.
The Commission oversees a number of permits issued by the City of New Orleans. Each permit application will go through the VCC application review process, which includes review by the Architectural Committee and full Commission.
