    One Vacation Rental Per Block? New Orleans Gets First Draft of New Law

    The latest recommendations for permanent rules on short-term rentals in New Orleans would make key changes to how the units are licensed, limiting the number of permits in neighborhoods to one per each side of a block and requiring the rental operator to live on site. The proposed rules, which were released by the City Planning Commission, represent the first draft of a new ordinance that must be approved by the City Council by March 31. U.S. District Judge Ivan Lemelle imposed that deadline in response to a 5th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling that the existing law was unconstitutional. That ruling led the City Council to impose a moratorium on new permits until a new law could be drafted.
