Location: 
LPC offices, NYC Municipal Building
1 Centre Street (Manhattan), 9th floor north
United States
Description: 

On Tuesday, July 15, 2008, the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission will vote whether to calendar the proposed Prospect Heights Historic District for a public hearing to be held on October 28, 2008.

Please note that the time and location of this meeting have changed. The meeting will now be taking place at 1:45PM, and will be held at the Landmarks Preservation Commission offices at 1 Centre Street in Manhattan.

Calendaring is the first step in the designation process. Once a building has been calendared, it is marked with a "C" in the Department of Buildings database. Any work that requires a Department of Buildings permit will also need to be reviewed by the Landmarks Preservation Commission prior to a permit being issued.

Public testimony will not be taken at the calendaring meeting, but residents are welcome to attend.

In the event the Commission votes to calendar the Prospect Heights historic district for a vote on designation on October 28, the public will have an opportunity to speak at that meeting.

Residents with questions about historic designation may call Claire Kendall at (212) 669-7925.
