New Orleans Comprehensive Zoning Ordinance

4.3.A Purpose

Within each zoning district, the use of land and structures are substantially uniform. However there are certain uses that, because of their unique characteristics, cannot be properly classified in certain districts without consideration, in each case, of the impact of those uses upon neighboring land and of the public need for the particular use at the particular location. These uses are allowed as conditional uses within the zoning districts. This section sets forth the standards used to evaluate proposed conditional uses and the procedures for approving conditional uses. The designation of a use in a zoning district as a conditional use does not constitute an authorization or assurance that such use will be approved. No conditional use may be established and no building permit may be issued for any use designated as a conditional use within a zoning district until a conditional use ordinance is adopted by the City Council and final drawings are submitted to and approved by the Executive Director of the City Planning Commission.
