By Crystal Nix

A Town Hall Meeting was held Monday, Dec. 4 at the Knights of Columbus Hall. Council Member Denise Maddox announced the unexpected resignation of Council Member Andrea Coleman. The council is looking for recommendations from District Four to replace her for the remainder of her term.

Nicole Hobson-Morris, Executive Director of the Division of Historic Preservation, was present at the DeQuincy Town Hall Meeting held Monday night. The meeting was called to discuss the Grand Avenue Gym being placed on the Historic Register. The gym was nominated for the registry by Joseph Eaglin, DeQuincy resident. Mrs. Morris explained that as a public building, anyone could nominate a building for the registry. The city of DeQuincy was informed of the nomination by way of letter in January, 2017. The building was officially listed on the Historical Register Aug. 2, 2017.

The following nomination was taken directly from the minutes of the Louisiana National Register Review Committee Meeting Apr. 6, 2017, Capitol Park Welcome Center in Baton Rouge.
