Mayor Again Proposes Cuts to the Landmarks Preservation Commission Budget, Threatening Preservation
Mayor Adams preliminary proposed budget once again slashes funding to the city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission. Reduced funding means less oversight to prevent the growing plague of the destruction of historic buildings, longer wait times for needed permits and applications, and slower and fewer designations of endangered and worthy historic properties.
In 2022 we were able to successfully rally for full restoration of all the Mayor’s proposed cuts, and we must fight for the same now. Otherwise our city’s history, fragile landmarks, small-property owners, and residents and businesses located in historic buildings will suffer.
