PORTLAND — The City Council Monday decided to reconsider its rejection of a plan for a historic district on Munjoy Hill.

The council narrowly defeated the proposal Feb. 1, but Councilor Andrew Zarro, one of the five councilors who voted against it, urged the council to take it up again.

Zarro his intent is not to overturn the council’s decision, but rather get more information about whether historic districts increase cost of living, how the map of the district was drawn and if there could be a fund set up for economically disadvantaged people who can’t afford to meet historic designation requirements.

The matter will be taken up again Monday, April 5.
