Bill Would Have “Damaging Effect on Historic Preservation”

In testimony before the City Council Subcommittee on Landmarks, the MAS announced its opposition to “ill-conceived” pending legislation, Intro No. 705, which would profoundly alter the city’s landmark designation process and undermine the Landmarks Law, now celebrating its 40th anniversary. “We certainly do believe the [Landmarks Preservation] Commission’s designation process should be more transparent, but we don’t believe that amending the Landmarks Law will achieve this result.”
