The New Orleans City Council is closed for renovations, and meetings will move to the West Bank through — at least — March.

City Council meetings will be held at the Orleans Parish School Board offices at 3520 General DeGaulle Drive in Algiers, roughly six miles and 15 minutes (by car) from the Council chambers at 1300 Perdido St. in the CBD.

Council committee meetings and other city boards and commissions that use the chamber also will hold their meetings in "various sites, mostly in conference rooms in, or near City Hall," according to a City Council announcement. Some of those rescheduled spaces are on the Council's calendar.

City Council meetings are scheduled for January 11, January 25, February 8, February 22, March 8 and March 22. Likely on the agenda early in the new year are hearings on the Master Plan and the proposed crime camera and permit plan for businesses that sell alcohol, which are expected to draw large crowds.

The chamber is getting new LED lighting to replace its "theatrical-style" lighting, new paint, new carpet, new seating, an ADA-compliant speakers' lectern, and electrical and audio upgrades.
