If your business does not qualify as a home based business, you must apply at a commercial location that is zoned for that type of business. You can find a property's zoning district online at our Property Viewer. Property Viewer includes links to our Comprehensive Zoning Ordinance, where you can learn what types of businesses and activities are allowed in each zoning district.
Contact the Zoning Division at (504) 658-7125 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for questions.
