Proposed Riverside Terrace historic district has longtime residents fighting for their neighborhood

Quote

Mahmood, who applied for the historic designation last year after moving to the neighborhood in 2018, wants to preserve the tree-filled area that he said “is slowly getting discovered.” Some neighbors agree with the proposal. Many disapprove.

The issue has roiled the usually quiet Third Ward neighborhood, prompting widespread opposition among residents — most of them Black, many of them with deep roots in Riverside Terrace — who say the proposed historic district isn’t necessary and would drive up expenses and property values. They fear the move could oust longtime residents.
