Language Access

The Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) is committed to providing meaningful access to its services. In compliance with Executive Order 120 and Local Law 30 of 2017, LPC developed a Language Access Implementation Plan (LAIP) outlining how the agency will ensure it can serve individuals with Limited English Proficiency (LEP). This plan will ensure New York City's diverse population can have meaningful access to the agency's services and programs.
