What’s wrong with the city staff’s new LPO

On 1 May, staff-proposed language for the revised Landmarks Preservation Ordinance finally came out of the city’s oven, complete with a Negative Declaration. Both are available for perusal on the Planning Department’s website, as is Planning Director Dan Marks’ report to the Landmarks Preservation Commission.

In the meantime, a ballot initiative was filed by a group of Berkeley citizens to retain the existing LPO with modifications requested by the California Office of Historic Preservation.

John English and Laurie Bright demystify the staff’s draft in their point-by-point analyses.
