Landmarks Commission releases guide for permit applications
Posted: January 11, 2013 - 10:21am

The New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission has launched a new manual on its website to help property owners in City historic districts (such as the Prospect Heights Historic District) file complete applications that include the correct materials, enabling our staff to review work proposals more expeditiously and issue permits with fewer delays. The LPC Permit Application Guide lists the materials that must be submitted, describes the criteria a project must meet to qualify for a permit, and explains the preservation principles for those criteria. 

 The guide includes application filing instructions, sample applications and checklists for nine of the most common categories of work that require an LPC permit. More work types will be added over time, and posted on LPC's website.
