Dedicated to the Creation, Maintenance and Beautification of

Public Parks, Playgrounds & Green Space throughout New Orleans.

The Comprehensive Zoning Ordinance (CZO) is the law that governs land use throughout the City of New Orleans. The CZO includes lists of permitted land uses for each of the City’s zoning districts, design standards, operational rules, and other regulations.  The newly elected City Council will be reviewing the CZO in the next year.     

Article 7 of the CZO refers to "Open Space Districts", including parks.  To read more about Article 7 and review current permitted/conditional uses allowed in parks,  visit czo.nola.gov.
