What's the latest?

The City Council adopted an updated Short Term Rental (STR) ordinance on April 1, 2022.

The purpose of the STR Ordinance is to establish regulations for the use of privately owned dwellings as Short Term Rentals. This Ordinance included a permit requirement and occupancy restrictions, among other changes.

Note: If your STR property was originally permitted prior to April 1, 2022, and the permit has been maintained, you will fall under the rules lined out 2018 STR Ordinance and your STR type may be considered "NON-CONFORMING" or Grandfathered.

Hignell-Stark v. City of New Orleans

A 2022 ruling from the Fifth Circuit US Court of Appeals indicates that a portion of the City of Fredericksburg STR ordinance is unconstitutional. The City must make changes to its ordinance, or it risks facing legal challenges from property owners.
