Preserve Your City: Support Funding the Landmarks Commission
May 23rd, 2008, 12:05 pm
To ensure that the success of the past two years in increasing the budget of the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) and improving its ability to protect the city’s most important historic buildings continues in fiscal year 2009, join MAS, Council Members, and other preservation groups this Wednesday, May 28, at 2:00 p.m., on the steps of City Hall to rally for adequate funding for the LPC. Bring a sign or prop illustrating your favorite undesignated neighborhood or building so that the Council and the public can see all of the various sites across the city that require the LPC’s attention. If you can’t be there, e-mail your Council Member and ask them to support the the renewal of $300,000 for the LPC’s budget for the coming fiscal year, and watch the new movie above explaining why this additional funding is so important.
