New Orleans Comprehensive Zoning Ordinance

Printed: 9/21/2023 10:44:03 PM

4.9.C Applicability

No structure or land may be used or occupied, in whole or in part, for any purpose, until a zoning verification has been issued stating that the use, structure, and site improvements comply with the provisions of this Ordinance. A zoning verification shall be issued prior to issuance of a building permit, certificate of occupancy, or business license. A zoning verification is needed only for the first permit or license issued for the building or site. For example, new construction that requires both a building permit and a certificate of occupancy only requires a zoning verification for the building permit.
