There are many city laws that affect all properties within the Garden District. Most of the rules pertaining to a property and its use fall under the category of Zoning. Please seek the advice of a qualified agent or city official before making any changes to your property.
In 2015, the City Council approved new Comprehensive Zoning Ordinance (CZO) that is now in effect. A GDA committee worked for over two years with city managers and a hired consultant as well as adjacent neighborhood organizations to establish guidelines on specific zoning concerns that are appropriate for our neighborhood. Specific items of interest as well as pertinent maps can be found on the new CZO webpage by clicking on the link below and inserting a topic.
