The New Orleans City Council’s decision on whether to place parts of Mid-City and the Parkview neighborhood under the jurisdiction of the Historic District Landmarks Commission has been posted until their Dec. 15 meeting, city officials said.

The Council has already approved a measure placing most of Uptown and Carrollton under the HDLC, which in most cases has decision-making authority over requests to demolish historic properties.

The Mid-City and Parkview decisions were slated to be heard last week, but with a full slate already scheduled to include the contentious AirBnB issue, the historic district was postponed until the Dec. 15 meeting.

The deadline for the council to make a decision is Jan. 4.
