Good news for historic preservation policy in Glen Cove, New York! The Glen Cove City Council recently approved an overhaul of its landmark preservation code to bring it into compliance with New York State Parks, Recreation & Historic Preservation standards.

“This is a positive step for preserving the city’s sense of history,” said Sarah Kautz, Preservation Long Island Director of Preservation and Advocacy. “The most important work of historic preservation happens at the local level because the only thing that can really protect a property from demolition or intensive redevelopment is a local landmark designation or local historic designation.” More details about this decision and additional comments from Sarah Kautz can be found in the Newsday article below:
