The City of New Orleans is currently rewriting the Comprehensive Zoning Ordinance (CZO), which dictates the zoning and uses for properties throughout the city. This is the first time the CZO is being rewritten since the 1970’s, so this is a huge opportunity (and maybe your only opportunity) to create a more ‘culture friendly’ city. Changes to the CZO will have a huge impact on the location of music venues and performance spaces.
On Wednesday, November 20th, at Kermit’s Treme Speakeasy at 12:30pm, members of the City Planning Commission will be attending a Music and Culture Coalition of New Orleans (MaCCNO) meeting to explain changes, answer questions and take comments about issues surrounding music and culture in the draft Comprehensive Zoning Ordinance.
To look over the draft CZO in advance of the meeting, you can go to the Planning Commission website, and the special appendix that addresses live entertainment and Alcoholic Beverage Outlets specifically.
