HAMMOND, La. (AP) - The Hammond City Council has voted to move forward with a committee to consider expanding the city’s Historic District.

Ralph Ross tells The Daily Star (https://bit.ly/1N3vds8) the area being considered has been known as the Adams-Lily Neighborhood, which abuts and adjoins the existing district. He says the area contains 92 properties, 42 people are on a mailing list and there is strong interest from the people living in the area.

Should the district be expanded, no additional commission would be needed as the existing historic district would oversee the area.

The council on Tuesday appointed Susan Owens, Marguerite Walter, Howard Nichols, Tom Pistorius, Ryan Faulk, Barbara McKaskle and Jessica Shirey to the study committee.
