New York State Senator Tony Avella writes to Mayor de Blasio and Chair Meenakshi Srinivasan of the Landmarks Preservation Commission “in regards to the LPC decision to remove a large number [96] of potential landmark locations from the calendar as of December 9th.  I FIND THIS ACTION OUTRAGEOUS!
“Many of the applications have been calendared for years and to now just remove them is disgraceful.  I am calling on you to put an immediate stop to this action and to give the public a chance to provide their input on these long standing landmark applications.”
De-calendaring these items places them “in immediate danger with little or no time for the community to act…Do not become part of the problem.  I call upon [the Commission] to set a different tone.”
LANDMARK WEST! calls upon our elected officials to echo Senator Avella’s words in your own letters to Mayor de Blasio and LPC chair Srinivasan (  We urge you to write your letter, which we will post on our blog as well.
