12 Commissioners decide the fate of what gets landmarked and preserved for the future and what changes are allowed – yet all but one are serving on expired terms. 

The New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission is the smallest of the City’s Agencies, yet is the “largest municipal preservation agency in the nation”.  Its ~80 person staff stretches across several departments: Research, Preservation, Enforcement, Archaeology, and Environmental Review. The Chair of the Commission is appointed by the mayor.  The remainder of the Commission is an assembly of representatives from each of the five boroughs as well as a Planner, an Historian, a Realtor and Architects.  The current commission:
