In addition, CPNC holders can apply for a Special Needs CPNC license. These are granted by authority of the Mayor and are based on the needs of the event.
There shall be compliance with all applicable provisions of the New Orleans City Code Chapter 162-197 prior to the issuance of the temporary CPNC for special events/special needs.
Valid during indicated special event and/or special need only.
