All Things New Orleans: Healthy Homes Ordinance

Greater New Orleans Fair Housing Action Center

Last month, the New Orleans City Council's Community Development committee introduced an ordinance implementing a city wide rental registry beginning in January 2018. The ordinance, sponsored by Latoya Cantrell and Jason Williams, will require rentals to meet a check list of health and safety requirements before the property can be rented out. 

Maxwell Ciardullo, Director of Policy & Communications at the Greater New Orleans Fair Housing Action Center, joins us to talk more about the "Healthy Homes Ordinance".

Note: The Healthy Homes Ordinance will receive it's final vote in front of the New Orleans City Council Thursday, February 23, 2017 at 10am.
