Mid-City Neighborhood Now A New Orleans Historic District Landmarks Commission Member



NEW ORLEANS—On Thursday, March 2, the neighborhood of Mid-City left the Neighborhood Conservation District Advisory Committee (NCDAC) and became a member of the New Orleans Historic District Landmarks Commission (HDLC). The NCDAC reviews demolition applications within the district and provides recommendations to the City Council. By becoming a local historic district, demolition requests in Mid-City will only have to be heard by the HDLC, streamlining the process for demolition.

         “This addition to the Historic District Landmarks Commission is a win for the property owners of the Mid-City neighborhood,” said Mayor Mitch Landrieu. “The simplified process will make it cheaper and faster to get the permits residents want while preserving the historical architecture that makes New Orleans the great city it is.”

         District A Councilmember Susan Guidry said, “Mid-City is the heart of New Orleans. I couldn’t be more pleased that the HDLC will begin regulating demolition in the new Mid-City local historic district as we shift demolition review from NCDAC to HDLC for this part of the City.  This shift from the current NCDAC procedures will reduce the cost of applications as well as remove steps from the permitting process while ensuring that the diverse historic building stock of Mid-City receives thoughtful review when being considered for demolition.”

         The Mid-City historic district is designated as a “partial control” district, meaning the HDLC will only have jurisdiction over demolitions within those boundaries. All of the HDLC rules, policies, procedures, design guidelines and maps can be found on the HDLC website.

         HDLC is charged with safeguarding the heritage of the City of New Orleans through the preservation, protection and regulation of buildings, sites, monuments, structures and areas of historic interest or importance within the City.
