Uptown Triangle Neighborhood Association
“Zoning Creep” is commercial zoning creeping into residential neighborhoods.
In 2012, the Uptown Triangle Neighborhood Association, working with the New Orleans Department of Safety and Permits, stopped the illegal “intensification of use” (Zoning Creep) of a non-conforming commercial property at the corner of Short Street and Leake Avenue.
Citizens must be vigilant to protect our residential neighborhoods and to stop illegal expansion of commercial businesses.
