The Environment and Parks Committee is the advocate for our community’s environmental health, as well as for the preservation of parks, playgrounds, and other open spaces in Manhattan Community District 6.
The Committee works with the Department of Parks & Recreation to:
- Support opportunities for new open spaces and recreational facilities
- Monitor and make recommendations regarding the expenditure of park and open space dollars
- Monitor proposed uses and permits within our parks
Additionally, the Committee works with the Landmarks Preservation Commission to preserve our existing historic districts, makes recommendations on any proposed changes to landmark buildings, and makes recommendations on buildings and neighborhoods to be designated as City landmarks. Lastly, the Committee assesses applications for cultural funding, and serves as the district’s liaison to the public library system and the Department of Cultural Affairs.
