Huge turnout at landmarks hearing on Far West Village
A standing room only crowd packed the Landmarks Preservation Commission yesterday to show support for the proposed expansion of landmark protections in the Far West Village and to ask the Commission to go even further (for maps of the proposed Far West Village Historic districts heard yesterday, CLICK HERE and HERE).
The Commission was clearly impressed by the turnout, acknowledging the hard work done by many including GVSHP to bring us to this point. However, we still need the Commission to vote these entire proposed landmark districts into law, we need them to designate the other sites in the Far West Village they have promised to consider for landmarking, and we need to get them to expand their proposal to include gravely endangered sites like the Superior Inks factory.
HOW TO HELP:
Write to the Commission urging they designate these districts in their entirety as soon as possible, that they hold hearings on the other sites in the Far West Village they have committed to consider, and that also include other worthy endangered buildings like the Superior Inks factory.
