Reforming the Landmarking Process

Village Preservation advocates for changes and improvements to the landmarking system to better protect historic resources and allow New Yorkers to more fully participate in the process. Village Preservation has advocated for reforms that would make demolition or compromise of historic buildings prior to landmark designation less likely, and allow easier access by the public to information about landmarks applications and hearings. Village Preservation also successfully led the charge against proposals by the Landmarks Preservation Commission to reduce the public’s participation in the landmarks public review and approval process.
