10.1.E Purpose of the VCS Vieux Carré Service District

The VCS Vieux Carré Service District is intended to provide for the redevelopment of areas near the Mississippi River that were historically developed with industrial and commercial uses as a mixed-use area, with ground-floor retail and commercial uses and residential uses above. This district also promotes the improvement, beautification and redevelopment of existing surface parking lots and their redevelopment with structured parking and a mixture of commercial and residential uses. Existing commercial uses that do not adversely affect residential uses or the overall character of the Vieux Carré are also intended to be accommodated in the VCS-1 District.
