We received this in an E-mail today. If effects not only the HP, but all NYC landmarks as well. The Real Estate Board of New York is calling for extreme reforms of the Landmarks Law. If successful they could change the way Landmark are designated!
E-BULLETIN OF THE HISTORIC DISTRICTS COUNCIL
Public Meeting to Defend the Landmarks Law
Tuesday, June 19th
6pm – 7:30pm
General Society of Mechanics and Tradesmen
20 West 44th Street
As you may be aware, the Real Estate Board of New York is heading up a coalition calling for extreme reforms of the Landmarks Law, reforms which HDC believes would cripple the landmark designation process and damage the regulation of existing protected landmarks. HDC believes that preservation nurtures the city, feeds our commerce and enhances our economy. That these reforms are being proposed now, when investment in New York City real estate is on the upswing, makes their concerns about preservation stifling development particularly peculiar.
HDC is holding an emergency public meeting to discuss community responses to this Vesuvian eruption. We’ll be discussing the concerns raised, the legislation that have been proposed and what community groups and individuals can do.
Please join the HDC for an informative and important meeting.
Open to all but RSVP requested to firstname.lastname@example.org.
