Landmarks At City Council: New Service Launched To Keep An Eye & Comment Publicly
I am writing to you to let you know about a brand-new service my office is starting to help keep those interested in Landmarks designation informed about the City Council portion of the process.
As you know, the City Council reviews the designation of Landmarks and Historic Districts after their review by the Landmarks Preservation Commission. The hearings for these items are held in the City Council’s Land Use Subcommittee on Landmarks, Public Siting and Maritime Uses, which I chair.
We would like to help keep interested members of the public informed about the agenda of the committee and opportunities to comment publicly.
You and others who are interested can sign up for an email that will give you the agenda of the subcommittee when it is available here:
Emails will be typically sent a few days before the hearing is held, as the agenda becomes publicly available. You can choose which boroughs you are interested in hearing about and will receive an email with the full agenda when there is an item in your borough(s) of interest.
Please help us spread the word about this helpful new tool for those interested in the work of the Council’s Landmark Subcommittee:
If you have any questions, please contact Michael Freedman-Schnapp, Director of Policy for my office at (212) 788-6969 or firstname.lastname@example.org
