In a case addressing what consulting fees (in particular attorneys’ fees) can be charged to an applicant before a Zoning Board of Appeals, the Second Department in Landstein v. Town of LaGrange (– N.Y.S.3d –, 2018 WL 4905436, at 1 (Oct. 10, 2018)) found that the Town had overreached its statutory authority. Petitioner, an amateur radio operator, received an FCC license to operate a ham radio station at his single-family home. He sought a special use permit to allow him to construct a 100-foot ham radio antenna structure (that would be 18 inches by 18 inches wide). As the Town limited the height of “towers” to 35-feet, Petitioner also sought an area variance for the height of his proposed antenna.

The New York City Landmarks Preservation Law authorizes the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) to designate interior landmarks as well as exterior landmarks. An interior site is eligible for designation only if the public has access to the site, but once the LPC has designated the interior landmark, can the LPC authorize its owner to close the landmark to public access?
