The New Orleans City Council is set to finalize a new short-term rental law on March 23, amid signs of wavering in the four-member majority that previously voted for strict caps on tourism housing in neighborhoods. That proposal limits non-commercial permits to one per square block. It is far more restrictive than what planners suggested and has drawn criticism from homeowners who say they rely on short-term rental income. The proposal narrowly passed in an initial vote on March 2, and even then council members said they wanted to explore a compromise ahead of the final vote.
