Too numerous
Comments: This list is riddled with errors as far as the column which notes eligibility, which really brings into question the competence of whoever is doing this work.

The following houses are listed as being eligible because of their contrbuting status to the Broadmoor Historic District or the proposed expansion to that district. And while they might be contributing in a another district, they are nowhere near Broadmoor:

1621-23 Agriculture St
2408 Aubry Street
2711 Aubry Street
2620-22 Castiglione Street
2901-03 Castiglione Street
2428-30 D'Abadie Street
1727 North Dupre Street
1731 North Dupre Street
1735 North Dupre Street
1768-70 Gentilly Boulevard
1790 Rosiere Street
2124 Saint Bernard Avenue

I haven't checked if these properties contribute to other historic districts. They may. But they are nowhere near Broadmoor, and such a fundamental error by folks whose bread and butter is mapping and precisely identifying properties for historic preservation certainly brings into question the whole process.
