In 2016, the City of New Orleans passed an ordinance allowing Short term Rentals across the city, except for the French Quarter. For over two years up until that time,  the Association researched, prepared and put up a very strong, well thought out fight against each element of the proposal to allow Short Term Rentals and to keep the prohibition in place for additional Bed and Breakfasts in the neighborhood.  After building coalitions with other neighborhood and preservation groups, hoteliers, housing advocates and neighbors across the city, the proposal from the City Council was modified slightly but not enough to heed the major concerns of those opposing the measures.   The City Council voted 5-2 in favor of Short Term Rentals throughout the city except for the French Quarter.    Please review the summary and the link below for more information.
