Land Use
 

Join us May 2 to learn how to find public records related to land use

Have you ever wondered how Louisiana’s public records laws work? On Wednesday, May 2, journalists from The Lens will explain how you can use public records to hold your government agencies accountable and how to get those records.

This time, we will focus on land use records. This includes public records relating to zoning and permitting. Expect to learn about short-term rentals, blighted properties, demolitions, and more.

As with our other public records workshops, here’s what you’ll learn:

  • How Louisiana’s public records laws work
  • An overview of how New Orleans regulates land use, from your block to the city
  • How to find records related to code enforcement, zoning and building permits
  • How to use The Lens’ data apps to find what you want to know
  • How to get in touch with your council members and other relevant city officials.
