The City of New Orleans

Mayor Mitchell J. Landrieu

Vieux Carré Commission

The Vieux Carré Commission Foundation in conjunction with the Vieux Carré Commission is in the process of revising the Design Guidelines. You are encouraged to review and comment on the Guidelines while they are in draft form.

You may preview the draft of the revised VCC Design Guidelines here.


The Vieux Carré Commission (VCC) protects, preserves, and maintains the distinct architectural, historic character, and zoning integrity of the Vieux Carré as mandated by the Louisiana State Constitution, the City Charter, the City Code and the Comprehensive Zoning Ordinance. This includes:

  • regulating all repairs, alterations and construction that affect the exterior (whether visible from the street or not) of any building situated on private property in the French Quarter
  • charging owners with violations of the City’s regulations to seek the correction of such infractions.

The VCC oversees the area bounded by Iberville St., N. Rampart St., Esplanade Ave., and the Mississippi River.
