LEAGUE CITY Four more property owners are looking to secede from the city s historic district only six months after a group of homeowners along the district s northern edge were successful in their request.

Three homeowners and a business owner have turned in petitions to the city arguing they do not belong in the historical district and should be let out from under the authority of the Historical District Commission.

The commission oversees development in the district using the regulations outlined in the district s preservation plan. Earlier this year, the city council allowed properties along Seventh Street and in the Township development to leave the district.

Tonight, the council will consider the two separate petitions. One petition was filed by two homeowners on Coryell Street and another on Iowa Avenue. A separate petition was filed by Mar Edelman, who owns a retail building at 603 Main St.
