IMPORTANT: Keep Sending Letters To LPC

This is it: Our biggest battle, the one that decides everything, is upon us.

The developers presented their project to the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) on Tuesday, October 20 at a remote public hearing. The LPC has the authority to decide whether this project moves forward. Normally, the commissioners discuss a project following the applicant’s presentation and public testimony, however due to the amount of people testifying against the project at the hearing, they decided to postpone their discussion to a later public meeting.

We need to keep flooding the LPC with letters ahead of this public meeting:
send this letter via Action Network in just 2 clicks (preferred, so we can keep track of the number of emails sent)
– access the script and instructions here, and send your own email

You may also send your own, original letter. Feel free to email us with questions at friendsof920park@riseup.net. And remember: while we oppose the project on many grounds, the LPC only considers arguments related to the preservation of the historical landmark. Therefore, in order to win this, we must make arguments that fall within LPC’s narrow purview.

Sign the Petition

Click here to add your signature to the online petition opposing the project. You can share it with friends and neighbors by using the short URL change.org/PreserveCHN.
Please note that the change.org platform asks if you want to donate after you sign. If you do this you are sending money to change.org, not to us. We are not soliciting any donations.
