Mid-City, Parkview historic districts: Vote postponed to next month

The Tulane-Canal neighborhood wants to be considered separately

Although it got overshadowed by the big short-term rental debate planned for that day, last Thursday City Council was scheduled to discussed granting the Mid-City and Parkview neighborhoods official historic designation under the Historic District Landmarks Commission.

Mid-City Messenger says that discussion has been tabled until next month, and the Tulane-Canal Neighborhood Association would now like that area to be considered separately from Mid-City in the next proposal.

The Tulane-Canal Neighborhood Association formed last spring, further distinguishing the area from the rest of Mid-City. The group is asking for different HDLC oversight for different parts of that neighborhood. According to Mid-City Messenger:

“The board wants the regulatory agency to oversee demolition only from a specific area between Banks and St. Louis streets, and not have any authority over what happens to buildings from the south side of Banks Street to Poydras Street.”
