Grasping the complexities of Skidmore historic preservation

A couple of weather days combined with delayed hearings and city bureau shufflings by the Mayor-Elect  have thrown light on the complexity of decisions regarding historic preservation in Old Town Chinatown.  Since  America’s relatively few Landmark Historic Districts help illuminate the national heritage of all of us, it’s appropriate to widen the discussion, as is happening on Art Scatter.    Hopefully the discussion will be deepened as well.  Meanwhile the Old Town Chinatown Joint Land Use Committee has circulated documents from Planning and the cautionary letter from the National Parks Service.  This discussion is multifaceted and therein lies the beauty of it.
