LPC is proposing both new rules and amendments to some of its existing rules, found in Title 63 of the Rules of the City of New York. The proposed rule changes are intended to streamline the process for approving every day work on designated properties, and make the regulatory process more efficient and transparent for applicants, neighbors and the public. The Proposed Rules and the Statement of Basis and Purpose can be found here. Fequently Asked Questions (FAQs) on the Proposed Rules can be found here.
The City Administrative Procedure Act (CAPA), Chapter 45 of the New York City Charter, establishes the procedure for adopting rules.
