    Planning Commission Endorses Block Caps for New Orleans Short-Term Rentals

    The New Orleans City Planning Commission endorsed a one per blockface limit on short-term rentals in residential areas. Despite opposition expressed at an earlier debate on the cap, the commission turned to it as a way to limit the proliferation of rentals in neighborhoods after a key provision in the city’s previous regulations was shot down by a federal court in August. The commission also voted to limit rental owners in residential areas to just one permit and to reduce the number of guest bedrooms allowed in non-commercial short-term rentals to six, with a three guest cap. The City Council still needs to consider the changes in the coming weeks, before adopting a new law by March 31.
