New Notification Requirements for Land-use Application and Zoning Changes

At Yesterday’s City Council Governmental Affairs Committee meeting, City Council approved new notification requirements for land-use application and zoning changes for a 90-day trail period. These new notification requirements would do the following…

  • The City will make it easier to find meeting notices and agendas on
  • Applicants would be required to place a sign on the property.
  • Post Cards will be sent to all property owners and residents within 300 feet of the subject property.
  • Office of Neighborhood Engagement will email neighborhood organizations.

Nick Kindel from the NOLA CPP commented at the meeting that this is a good first step to informing people about what is going on in their neighborhood. He also said that the CPP/NPP will take it a step further. Councilmember Guidry said that these new notification requirements will role in to the NPP. For more information, please see these articles from The Lens and Uptown Messenger. You can find a pdf copy of the new notification rules on the Lens website.
