Proposed NoHo Historic District Extension
Proposed NoHo Historic District Extension: GVSHP has long joined NoHo neighborhood groups, other preservation organizations, and local elected officials in calling for an extension of historic district protections to the remainder of NoHo. The LPC is considering a proposed expansion of the existing NoHo Historic District, and will be holding a hearing on the proposal on Tuesday, March 18, at 9:30 A.M. Given the amount of new (and in many cases totally inappropriate) development which has taken place and is planned in NoHo, it is critical that long-overdue landmark designations move ahead as quickly as possible. Information about and pictures of the proposed NoHo Historic District expansion provided through the Landmarks Preservation Commission.
HOW YOU CAN HELP:
Write to the Landmarks Preservation Commission urging them to designate the proposed NoHo Historic District extension right away, but also urging them to include adjacent sites in NoHo which were left out.
Come to the hearing on Tuesday, March 18th at 9:30 A.M. at the LPC, One Centre Street (at Chambers Street), 9th floor; show support or (even better) testify at the hearing, using the sample support letter as a basis for your testimony.
