To attendees or anyone who may have missed this program: Please find link to LPC’s Presentation on Permit Applications here.

The NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) has launched an updated edition of the Permit Application Guide, now titled LPC Permit Guidebook: How to Get Staff-Level Approvals. The Guidebook, which reflect the new rules and amendments adopted by the Commission in January 2019, focuses on the most common types of work that require a permit, such as window replacement, restoration and additions. It includes new guidance on barrier-free access in order to ensure buildings are accessible, and, for the first time, it also addresses sustainability, resiliency, and flood-proofing measures in historic buildings so they may best adapt to the impacts of climate change.

The presentation will be an introduction to the agency’s revised permit guidebook and new application forms. These resources have been revamped to help architects and other applicants submit all the correct application materials for work that the staff can approve and to get LPC permits more quickly. The presentation will give an inside look at the framework of the guidebook and point out entirely new work type sections and content, as well as the application forms and other new online tools.
