COVID-19 Update:

To accommodate social distancing and address ongoing health concerns, members of the public will continue to be able to join PDC meetings remotely until further notice. PDC commissioners will meet on the third floor of City Hall, which will also be open to the public with limited capacity. An overflow space in the vicinity of City Hall will be provided, if necessary, to allow for social distancing. All persons attending the meeting in person must wear a mask at all times and complete a health screening prior to entering the meeting space.



The Public Design Commission meets once a month. Meetings are held on the third floor of City Hall, unless otherwise indicated. Committee meetings are generally held first in the morning, followed by the public meeting.

Public Design Commission meetings are held in an accessible space. The entrance to the building, the restrooms, and the meeting room are wheelchair accessible.

If you would like to attend this meeting and request free reasonable accommodations such as interpretation into a language other than English; American Sign Language Interpreting (ASL); Captioning in Real-Time (CART); or the meeting agenda in Braille, large print, or electronic format, please contact the Public Design Commission at 212-788-3071 or at least three business days (72 hours) before the meeting.
