Statement of Basis and Purpose of Rule

The Landmarks Preservation Commission’s (LPC) rules currently provide standards for the approval of the installation of public pay telephones (“PPT”) on LPC-designated property.  The City of New York has awarded a franchise agreement for the installation, operation and maintenance of public communications structures (“PCS”), which includes the replacement of public pay telephones with PCS that will provide free Wi-Fi and phone service.  The amendments to section 2-21 of the LPC’s rules will provide standards for the approval of the installation of PCS in a similar manner as the existing approval for PPTs.

The amendments to section 2-21 set forth the standards to allow the installation of PCS without review and approval by the LPC staff:

  • The PCS must be a design approved by the Public Design Commission;
  • The location of the PCS must meet siting criteria established by the Department of Information Technology and Telecommunication; and
  • The installation of the PCS must meet standards to preserve historic paving materials.

 

In response to comments received by the Commission, the following additional criteria were made to the proposed rules which are reflected in the adopted rules:

  • The rules do not authorize the installation of a PCS kiosk in an area zoned exclusively for residential use unless the PCS kiosk is replacing an existing PPT installation; and
  • In addition to all other siting criteria for areas zoned for commercial and manufacturing uses, no PCS kiosk shall replace an existing PPT installation that is within 100 linear feet on the same blockfront as another PPT installation or PCS kiosk.

 

Effective Date: 
Fri, 08/12/2016
