Regulations on historic neighborhoods expanded

Carrollton and St. Charles Avenue are now  under extended historic oversight

House owners on St. Charles and South Carrollton avenue may need to report to the Historic District Landmarks Commission for any renovations, construction and changes to the outside of the properties.

According to Nola.com, the City Planning Commission temporarily approved the new districts on Tuesday, Sept. 27, 2016. The preliminary approval was passed to preserve the look and feel of historic neighborhoods. While the CPC approved the changes, some residents are concerned about the new regulation, Nola.com reports.

The recommendation will go through the CPC for a final approval later this year.

Originally the districts affect homes in the Uptown, Carrollton, Mid-City and Parkview area.
