The Park Slope Historic District could broaden to include thousands more buildings, pending a preliminary hearing between the Landmarks Preservation Commission and neighborhood expansion advocates Feb. 23. The broadening of the district would be implemented incrementally, eventually encompassing structures in the area bounded by Flatbush Avenue, Prospect Park West, 15th Street and Fifth Avenue, according to the New York Post. Elizabeth de Bourbon, a spokesperson for the commission, said that the agency is suggesting an incremental approach because the proposed plan involves the inclusion of 4,000 new buildings, a vast undertaking that would otherwise tap all of the commission’s resources. “The reason we’re looking at an extension in phases… is that we’ll be able to move forward with districts elsewhere in the city,” de Bourbon said. “Otherwise, we’d have to devote almost all of our resources to this neighborhood. We have to weigh this extension against all of our other priorities.”
