Public Comment

Written Public Comment to the Landmarks Preservation Board

The Landmarks Preservation Board conducts its meetings in person and remotely using WebEx. You may submit written public comment at any time. We encourage you to submit written comment well in advance of the meeting to give the Board sufficient time to review them. If you would like to ensure that your written public comment is forwarded to the Board prior to the applicable Board meeting, please submit your comment to and/or no later than 3:30 pm the day prior to the meeting. The Board meeting agendas can be found on the Landmarks Preservation Board webpage.
