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.
