The LPC sent an email this afternoon saying that at their meeting next Tuesday, January 22, the commission will consider calendaring four historic districts in Sunset Park: Sunset Park North, Central Sunset Park, Sunset Park 50th Street and Sunset Park South.
“These areas contain the most cohesive and intact concentrations of high quality architecture in Sunset Park and together represent the neighborhood’s primary periods of historical and residential development,” the commission wrote in the email.
The desire to see a landmark district in Sunset Park has long existed. In March 2014, the Sunset Park Landmarks Committee submitted their Request For Evaluation to the LPC.
The boundaries of each proposed district can be found in detail on the LPC’s calendar for next week’s meeting.
What is happening next week is their calendering. Once that happens, public hearings will be held for each of the four districts and the commission will eventually vote on its designation.
