The Historic Review Commission of Pittsburgh will consider expansion of the Mexican War Streets Historic District at its meeting at 12:30 p.m. Nov. 7 in the Robin Building, 200 Ross St.

The public will have a chance to comment, and the commission will make a preliminary decision on the validity of the proposal.

The Central Northside Neighborhood Council and the Mexican War Streets Society petitioned the city to have the city's historic boundaries match those recognized by the National Parks Service as a national historic district.

The national historic district is bounded by Buena Vista Street on the west, O'Hern Street on the north, Reddour Street on the east and North Avenue on the south -- about 84 acres and 23 blocks.
