Join the Prospect Heights Neighborhood Development Council to find out how property owners can improve their historic buildings, while helping to preserve the character of Prospect Heights.

Learn how owners of properties in the Prospect Heights National Register Historic District may qualify for tax credits from Federal and State governments when completing renovation projects that can help offset construction costs. You'll also find out about PHNDC's efforts to expand the National Register District to include nearly 970 buildings.

Hear about what to expect when planning a construction project in the New York City Landmark Prospect Heights Historic District

Finally, we'll talk about a new initiative from the City to increase building height limits in neighborhoods like Prospect Heights that make use of contextual zoning. Zoning for Quality and Affordability seeks in part to make it easier to develop affordable housing for families and seniors, and we'll discuss what the proposal may mean for our neighborhood.

Guest speakers:

  • Daniel McEneny, Community Preservation Services Bureau, New York State Parks, Recreation & Historic Preservation
