Lawmakers seek $1M increase for LPC

With development booming across New York City, preservation groups are seeking a $1 million increase to the city's Landmark Preservation Commission's 2008 operating budget.

Preservation Groups Seek $1M Budget Increase

Last year, City Council members Jessica Lappin of Manhattan, Tony Avella of Queens, and Diana Reyna of Brooklyn sponsored a one-time $250,000 increase to the Commission's budget.

At the rally yesterday, Ms. Lappin said Mayor Bloomberg should make the $250,000 increase permanent and add another $750,000 to the operating budget.

I'm sure that the first thing that the LPC will do with the increased funding is to hire more PR staff to tell the public what a great job they're doing!
