Listen to the Angela Hill show on the new CZO Governing the Quarter
CZO Amendment NMR 17
The amendment will have a profoundly negative impact on the communities in your district.
Czo Amendment NMR 17 part 1-5
In this amendment CM Ramsey went through these CZO sections that apply to bars, standard resturants, and indoor amusement facilities. And deleted the same 4 items in each of these sections.

SizeMatters but not to the City Council or the Mayor.
On Thursday, May 14th, the City Council spent more time debating a single Cigar Bar in the French Quarter, than protecting our Riverfront and the Historical Integrity of our neighborhoods. In fact, there was no debate about our Historic Districts, and to add insult to injury, our maximum height has been changed from 50 feet to 55 feet. This means the out-of-scale height bonuses will go to 80 feet.
Please know the Board members who remain will continue to serve you in our capacity as volunteers, and will pursue all attempts to protect Faubourg Marigny in the best way we can.
Please continue to make your voice heard with our District C Councilmember Nadine Ramsey. We want to work together for solutions. SIZE truly does MATTER! Questions? Email the Board, email@example.com, or firstname.lastname@example.org
