West-Park approved by City Planning! On to City Council!

As reported by Cristiana P.

West-Park Presbyterian Church is one big step closer to becoming an official New York City Individual Landmark!

This morning at Public Meeting, the City Planning Commission (CPC), led by Comm. Amanda Burden, unanimously approved of the landmarking of West-Park.  The CPC's vote means that the designation now moves to the City Council for review (public hearing date TBD). 

The game is not yet won!  The City Council does have the ability to modify or deny the designation, now supported by both the Landmarks Preservation Commission and City Planning.  If you haven't already, NOW IS THE TIME to write to the City Council!

Tell our elected representatives how important West-Park and its landmarking is to you!  For contact information and to read letters from others committed to saving West-Park, visit the West-Park advocacy webpage.
