Small Box Retail Diversity Study

The Small Box Retail Diversity Study recommended ordinance changes, initiated by New Orleans City Council and completed by the City Planning Commission, has been deferred again to October 17. These recommendations help ensure more New Orleanians have access to fresh, healthy food by defining fresh and frozen food, Small Box Retailer, and Grocery Store. Additionally it places spacing requirements between stores defined as Small Box Retailers and incentivizes stocking healthy food.
