Preservation in Action
The Historic District Landmarks Commission (HDLC) is the City's regulatoryagency for local historic districts outside of the Vieux Carre. Established in 1976, thisagency provides the staff and office space for the two Commissions, the New OrleansHistoric District Landmarks Commission and the Central Business District HistoricDistrict Landmarks Commission. The two Historic District Landmarks Commissionssafeguard the heritage of the City by preserving and regulating historic landmarks anddistricts which reflect elements of its cultural, social, economic, political and architecturalhistory. They preserve and enhance the quality of neighborhoods, strengthening theCity's economic base, stimulating the tourist industry, improving property values,fostering economic development, and encouraging growth. (cityofno.com)I attended the Friday October 10, 2008 meeting of the New Orleans HistoricDistrict Landmarks Commission in City Council Chambers of City Hall at 1300 PerdidoStreet.

Then thecommission began discussing the agenda items.The process began by asking if the applicant was present and a staff memberreading a description of the building. If the applicant or a representative of the applicantwere present, the applicant or representative would have three minutes to speak andthe commission would then begin discussion. If the applicant or representative were notpresent, the commission could proceed with discussion or defer a decision to the nextmeeting. The commissioners were very considerate towards the applicants. Theaudience and the applicants were well-behaved except for one instance when anaudience member made a loud comment and the chairman asked the audience to keepdecorum.Most of the applicants represented themselves and were fairly well prepared.For some of the larger issues, to represent them applicants had an architect who wasvery well prepared. Often, if an architect were present for representation, thediscussion on the agenda item would be about thirty minutes.The first order of business on the agenda was four old business workapplications. Three of the four applicants were not present. Two of these three weredeferred for a second time. One item for which the applicant had failed to appear for a
