“Just Because You Can, Does It Mean You Should?”
Cocktails and conversation with President Dan Allen and Executive Director Simeon Bankoff
Thursday, February 11, 2016
The Landmarks Preservation Commission is the official agency which regulates how historic buildings are treated, but the LPC can only regulate the specifics of proposals. What about the choices underlying proposals – in other words, just because something is possible, does it follow that it should be allowed?
With that in mind, how should advocates evaluate the core preservation issues underlying proposals to change historic buildings?
Join the Historic Districts Council for an engaging evening of cocktails and conversation featuring Executive Director Simeon Bankoff and President Daniel Allen.
Mr. Allen, who serves as Principal at CTA Architects, will also present a series of case studies that both test the limits of the Landmarks Law and demonstrate the power of community activism.
