Planning, Preservation, and Community Participation, Part 1

February 16, 6:00 PM | The General Society of Mechanics and Tradesmen

The New York Landmarks Conservancy and General Society is hosting the first of three panels on the future of development and preservation in New York. Admission is $10 for members of the Conservancy and $15 for the general public. More information below! 

New York’s neighborhoods and skyline are changing swiftly with dramatic growth. City policies are encouraging vast new construction. Join us for the first of three panels that will explore important questions: How do we balance preservation and development? Do residents have enough say in planning and zoning? How can citizens help shape their City’s future?
