includes overlays, named by the architectural historian to reflect defining historic features in each area. The overlays are configured for the continuity of their structures, and by the fact that a good percentage of the structures in the area still retain their original character (at least as of April 2016) Any one or all of these areas, with majority approval by property owners, could apply for local historic district (LHD) nomination.

The accelerated demolition of original neighborhood structures reduces daily many opportunities for preservation and could easiy render these prospective dirticts and their protections unatainable. No LHD application process has begun anywhere in Bouldin, but if you’re interested in learning more about what LHD adoption means, please check http://www.austintexas.gov/department/local-historic-districts
