INFORMATION FOR NEW RESIDENTS
(Note from NOPD,
New Construction or Renovation
Prior to the 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.
