Temporary banners are permitted for non-commercial purposes to inform or promote events of public interest. Banners are not authorized for commercial advertising.

A banner permit is required for any and all  banners proposed to be mounted upon building facades or spanning the streets between any buildings in the French Quarter. The area of the VCC’s jurisdiction is bounded by Iberville St., N. Rampart St., Esplanade Ave., and the Mississippi River.

Before any exterior work can be undertaken on any property located within the Vieux Carre Historic District, the property owner, owner’s representative, lessee, architect or contractor must first make application to the VCC, specifying the anticipated work and the present and proposed use and/or treatment of the property before obtaining a permit from the Commission. Applications for permits fall into four basic categories: general work, painting, signage, and banners (temporary), and based upon the nature of most work applications, it is expected that support materials, as specified in the VCC Submission Guidelines, will be needed to fully explain whatever work is proposed.

Restrictions

Temporary banners are permitted for non-commercial purposes to inform or promote events of public interest. Banners are not authorized for commercial advertising.

Scanned materials provided by the applicant will be required in order to process an application. Without them, the application will be returned to the applicant until all required materials are submitted as well. VCC staff will NOT scan documents for any proposal or applicant. NO EXCEPTIONS.
