City Hall Press Conference About LPC Reappointments on Monday
From Citizens Emergency Committee to Preserve Preservation ([email protected])
Below we have reproduced parts of Council Member Tony Avella’s Media Advisory for Monday’s press conference, since it pretty much says it all:
WHAT: Council Member Tony Avella will join preservation groups/activists at a press conference Monday to promote the adoption of specific qualifications for candidates appointed to serve on the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC).
These qualifications include: knowledge of historical and architectural heritage of the city, experience in safeguarding this heritage, and independence in exercising judgment strictly on the merits without regard to political pressure or outside lobbying interests. Later in the day, the City Council’s Rules, Privileges, and Elections Committee is expected to confirm four reappointed candidates and one newly appointed candidate to serve on LPC.
WHEN: Monday, March 26th at 11:00 AM
WHERE: Steps of City Hall
We hope to see you there!
