The Conservancy welcomed the Mayor’s appointment of Sarah Carroll as Chair of the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) and testified in support of her nomination at a City Council hearing on September 20. (Read our testimony.)

Carroll, is currently the Executive Director of LPC. A longtime LPC staffer, she received a 2012 Sloan Public Service Award, which recognizes outstanding civil servants.

The Conservancy and colleague groups had written Mayor de Blasio after the April resignation of Meenakshi Srinivasan, urging him to appoint a Chair with a preservation background. We are very pleased that he did.
