Louisiana Landmarks Society To Host Economist Brinkmann Lecture On Short Term Rentals
NEW ORLEANS – On Tuesday, August 9, 2016, the City Planning Commission finalized their Short-Term Rentals recommendations, which are now in the hands of the City Council. An ordinance will be introduced and voted on in the coming weeks.
The Louisiana Landmarks Society will host “Short-Term Rental Realities: An In-depth Discussion with Jay Brinkmann” on Monday, August 22, at First Grace United Methodist Church, 3401 Canal St. (at Jefferson Davis Pkwy), at 6:00 p.m.
Brinkmann, a retired Chief Economist of the Mortgage Bankers Association in Washington, ran a research group dedicated to housing and housing finances issues. He is the U.S. representative on the executive committee of the International Union of Housing Finance, a 100-year old organization dedicated to housing issues around the world.
He will discuss what legal short-term rentals will mean for New Orleans residents and for neighborhoods throughout the city, how they will influence the housing market and how they will affect the future of the community.
The event is free and open to the public.
There will be parking available on the Clark Street side of the building.
