Abstract:

R. Christopher Goodwin Associates, Inc., completed the current study of the Broadmoor neighborhood of New Orleans, Louisiana. The goal of this study was to identify and to evaluate the built resources within the Broadmoor area through a reconnaissance-level architectural survey and the application of the National Register criteria for evaluation 36 CFR 60 a-d. These investigations were conducted following the identification of potential historic properties in the vicinity of the ongoing Southeast Louisiana Urban Flood Control Project SELA, a cooperative effort among the Corps of Engineers and Orleans, Jefferson, and St. Tammany parishes to improve drainage and to provide flood control in the New Orleans metropolitan area. The identification of a potential historic property in, and in the vicinity of the current SELA project prompted the USACE to reopen consultation under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, as amended NHPA. As directed under Section 800.13 Post-Review Discoveries, the USACE has continued consultation with the Division of Historic Preservation. In addition, the USACE has undertaken a reconnaissance-level survey to define further the potential historic district for the purposes of Section 106 consultation and to develop mitigation for any adverse effects to previously unidentified historic properties. Two concentrations of buildings were identified that may qualify as historic districts. These are the area of initial development in Broadmoor District 1, and the area defined the intersection of Claiborne and Louisiana Avenue.
