CB 2, Municipal Art Society Endorse Proposed District
After two public hearings attended by nearly 300 people, three committee meetings, and two full board meetings, last week Community Board #2 finally voted unanimously to strongly endorse the proposed South Village Historic District (see resolution). Thank you to all who attended and spoke in support, and to all of the Community Board members who worked so hard to secure this outcome. The Municipal Art Society, one of the city’s oldest and most respected civic organizations, has also joined in giving its strong endorsement to the proposal (see here) — both add considerable weight and momentum to the already nearly unanimous show of support this proposal has encountered.
However, several historic buildings within the district are immediately endangered, and more become so every day. We need the City to act upon this proposal as soon as possible.
