Subdivision Regulations

Current Regulations

In accordance with the provisions of the Louisiana Revised Statutes of 1950 Title 33:101 through 33:119 and the City Charter of January 1996, the New Orleans City Planning Commission has considered the May 1999 revisions to the Subdivision Regulations in order to promote the health, safety, convenience and general welfare of the inhabitants of the City of New Orleans and the Parish of Orleans, and to assist in bringing about the coordinated, efficient and economical development of the City and the Parish. These regulations and minimum standards have been considered after a public hearing duly advertised in the Official Journal, modified after discussion of the Commission, and are now hereby adopted by the City Planning Commission of New Orleans, Louisiana, at its regularly scheduled and advertised meeting this Tuesday, May 25, 1999.
