Hurricane Sandy - Emergency Repairs

A Message from the Landmarks Preservation Commission: Emergency Repairs on Landmark Properties

As many of you know, the LPC’s offices, located at 1 Centre Street, have been closed this week due to power loss from Hurricane Sandy. The staff has been checking voicemail and email and responding as best as possible. Updates have been posted on the Commission’s website as they become available.

Property owners and managers who need to make emergency repairs to their property should stabilize the condition first and follow up with LPC, when possible, for a permit. If the repair involves the removal or repair of an architectural feature, if possible, please photograph it, and store it safely.

Please note that the deadline to submit presentation materials for the next available Public Hearing, to be held on November 27th, has been postponed. For applications that are ready for that Public Hearing, please email the staff person working on the project before Monday to let them know that you would like to be on that agenda, and we will reserve a spot for you. The staff will work with you over the next coming weeks to get the presentation materials ready and to work through the related Community Board process.
