City Planning Commission votes to recommend ban on whole-home short-term rentals

Owner-occupied short-term rentals and whole-home STRs rented out for 30 days out of the year would be allowed

After a lengthy meeting yesterday, the City Planning Commission voted to recommend a ban on year-round, whole-home short-term rentals, but voted to legalize owner-occupied short-term rentals and whole-home STRs rented out for 30 days out of the year, according to NOLA.com.

The Planning Commission originally created four categories of short-term rentals, and the whole-home rental category was removed before the vote. The three categories the CPC approved are:

• Accessory: Renting out space in an owner-occupied home or half of an owner-occupied shotgun double.

• Temporary: Renting out an entire house for up to 30 days a year.

• Commercial: Short-term rentals of houses and condos in commercial areas.

The regulations go to City Council next.
