The Conservancy is a strong and respected voice for preservation laws and policies at every level of government. From testifying before the City’s Landmarks Preservation Commission, to lobbying in Albany and in Washington, D.C, to rallying constituents, we have a powerful impact. Our policy positions help shape landmarking, planning, and development decisions which affect our economy, tourism, and quality of life.
