The Citizens Emergency Committee to Preserve Preservation (CECPP) will discuss current efforts

to make sure New York City has a landmarks preservation system that works!

The challenge is to get the Landmarks Preservation Commission increased funding, operational transparency and political independence to do its job better so that beloved buildings and neighborhoods all over the City can be preserved.

What This Means:

*More staff to designate more landmarks and historic districts and to safeguard them against inappropriate changes*

*Fair and balanced consideration of community input*

*Making sure Landmarks Commissioners are qualified and free from political influence*
