This is a past event. Registration is closed. View other Greenwich Village Chelsea Chamber of Commerce events.

Stores and commercial spaces provide important services, products, jobs, and character to our neighborhoods and communities. Small businesses in landmarked buildings & historic districts have many wonderful assets, while also having NYC Landmark Preservation Commission (LPC) rules to follow. The LPC recently released guidelines to help business owners get approval for changes and better understand the regulations.

Join us for a presentation and opportunity to ask your questions with LPC Deputy Director of Preservation William Neeley and LPC Deputy Counsel John Weiss. Small business owners and merchants are especially encouraged to attend!

Co-sponsored by Manhattan Community Boards 2 and 3, Cooper Square Committee, East Village Community Coalition, East Village Independent Merchant's Association, Historic Districts Council, Meatpacking District Business Improvement District, NoHo Business Improvement District, NoHo Neighborhood Association, SoHo Alliance, the Greenwich Village Chelsea Chamber of Commerce, and the Village Alliance.
