Submissions for Change of Use Hearings
In regard to applications that also relate to proposed changes of use, and in accordance with Article 8, Section 8.1 of the 1996 Comprehensive Zoning Ordinance for the City of New Orleans, the VCC requires that all alterations related to the use change be documented with such a request, i.e. all exterior changes (as noted above) plus any interior changes such as floor plans, room arrangements, kitchen layout, handicapped restrooms, venting/exhaust systems, table arrangements, menus, descriptions of operations (hours, etc.) and so forth.
For a checklist of requirements please see the Submittal Requirements.
All proposed use changes must comply with the Comprehensive Zoning Ordinance (CZO); refer to the Vieux Carré zoning map and CZO to determine the approved uses for each structure.
*Please note that due to the public review process and in order to provide the Commission with complete materials for a thorough understanding of any proposal, the staff will schedule the subject property application for a hearing only after all the necessary materials have been provided.
