A temporary ban on new commercial short-term rentals in New Orleans is now in effect. City Council members voted Ton June 8 to create an interim zoning district (IZD), which means the city will not be accepting new applications or issuing new permits for commercial short-term rentals and other similar types of lodging in the near future. The decision comes just a few months after the council passed new rules for residential short-term rentals. The start date of the first lottery for residential short-term rental permits is set for August, pending litigation.
