INFORMATION FOR NEW RESIDENTS
New Construction or Renovation
Prior to beginning the construction of a residence, garage, swimming pool, fence or other structure, the owner shall submit reproduced copies of the detailed plans and specifications of the proposed building or structure to the Orleans Levee District Non-Flood Protection Asset Management Authority. No work shall be permitted on the building until such written approval is received and building permit is obtained from the City of New Orleans.
All plans must meet the requirements of the covenants of the Lakeshore Subdivision and be approved by the Orleans Levee District. The plans must also be approved by the Safety Permits Department of the City of New Orleans.
The ultimate responsibility for compliance with the restrictions is on the property owner. Approval of plans and/or issuance of the permit does not satisfy compliance with the title restrictions if, in fact, the construction, whether or not in accordance with the approved plans, is in violation of the lakeshore restrictions.
Prohibited activities on residential properties include: (1) use as professional offices; such use includes offices or working space for anyone other than the residents of the home; (2) regular visits by the employees or associates; (3) visits by patients, clients, customers, etc.; or (4) shipments from the home. Also prohibited are use of residential property for bed and breakfast operations, garage sales and yard sales. The Lakeshore residents are also requested to not post political yard signs on their property.
Commercial vehicles, boats and trailers should not be parked long-term on our streets. Also, park all residential vehicles in garages, carports and driveways rather than the public streets.
