Advice for opposing a historic district designation in my neighborhood : urbanplanning

Hello all,

I live in Candler Park which is on the east side of Atlanta. Recently a group of people in the neighborhood and with some support from our Neighborhood Organization have begun to organize to try and have the neighborhood designated as a historic district. It is in the early stages, but all indications seem to be that the goal is to do everything to prevent allowing small older homes to be turned into larger homes or duplexes. It is my hope that people see we should not be trying to outlaw more density and stop the designation, or ideally use this process to actually encourage more affordable housing to be built in the area. The anti density goals of this group seem to be very popular amongst my neighbors so any advice on arguments or strategies to oppose this movement would be greatly appreciated. Here is the link to the historic districts planning committee website if anyone is interested:
