Code Enforcement

In 2008, the Downtown Development District was authorized by the City of New Orleans to enforce the laws referenced in the municipal code of ordinances and have them heard in administrative hearings. Shortly thereafter, the DDD launched a code enforcement program to:

  • Ensure that buildings Downtown look economically vibrant and viable for business;
  • Encourage property owners to comply with City codes; and
  • Enforce City codes and cite properties when necessary.

Everyone can support the DDD’s code enforcement efforts.

Here’s what you can do to help ensure that buildings Downtown are well maintained and meet basic safety standards:
