Hearing on Historic District Mulled

Earlier this week, we told you about plans to expand the boundaries of the proposed historic district for the East Village; under the proposal the number of buildings receiving landmark protection would grow to 287 from 270. We’ve just learned that the Landmarks Preservation Commission will vote June 28 regarding whether to hold a public hearing about the creation of the district; a commission spokeswoman told us that the final vote to determine whether the buildings are landmarked will likely not be held this summer.
