Keep Eastmoreland Free appeals to the Eastmoreland Neighborhood Association (ENA) Board to withdraw its application to designate the neighborhood a National Historic District after its own poll clearly shows that the majority of Eastmoreland neighbors oppose the designation.

Despite statements by the ENA Board that it would seek neighborhood opinions before pushing for an Historic District designation, the Board hired a consultant and submitted the Historic District application in November. Three months later, the Board finally mailed out a poll but has said publicly that it was only advisory and non-binding. Keep Eastmoreland Free and the 725+ neighbors who have signed notarized objections against the proposed National Historic District designation urge the ENA board to respect the will of neighbors and withdraw its application.

The more neighbors learn about this costly and burdensome proposal that will impact their property rights, the less they like it. As the ENA Board may continue to disregard the wishes of the neighbors it serves and allow the designation to automatically become law, Keep Eastmoreland Free continues to urge homeowners to sign notarized letters of objection.

Signing an objection is the only way to prevent the proposed National Historic District from becoming a reality. Remember, a National Historic District designation is forever and will burden homeowners for generations to come.
