It is the policy of the City of New Orleans, pursuant to the federal Fair Housing Amendments Act of 1988 and applicable state laws, to provide individuals with disabilities reasonable accommodation in the City’s zoning and land use regulations, rules, policies and practices to ensure equal access to housing and to facilitate the development of housing for individuals with disabilities.
Reasonable accommodations in the zoning and land use context means providing individuals with disabilities, or developers of housing for people with disabilities, flexibility in the application of land use, zoning and building regulations, policies, practices and procedures, or even waiving certain requirements, when it is necessary to eliminate barriers to housing opportunities.
Reasonable accommodations requests are submitted for consideration by the Executive Director of the City Planning Commission. The Executive Director will issue a written decision within 30 days of the date the application is deemed complete. The applicant may appeal the Executive Director’s decision to the Board of Zoning Adjustments within 30 days of the decision.
