The New Orleans City Council is moving to vote on new regulations for short-term rentals this Thursday, January 10 @ 10AM. We’ve heard that some Council members, despite campaign promises, are withdrawing support for two of the most important components of the Residents for Ethical and Sustainable Tourism (REST) ordinance: the affordable housing and homestead exemption requirements.

Affordable Housing Requirements: a 1-for-1 affordable housing match for commercial STR permits. 2. Homestead Exemption Requirements: the host must live in the residence; no more whole-home STRs.
